The relationship between using technology classroom and the Social Studies teachers’ attitudes in Saudi Arabia.Alqhtani, Ebtssam (2015)Technology is an ever-changing tool for educators. This Masters project was designed to clarify if there are relationships between social studies teachers’ attitudes about technology and about using it in their classrooms. Findings suggest that the teachers’ gender, years of experience in teaching, and levels of education have an influence on their attitudes about using technology in the classroom. A questionnaire designed to measure teacher’s attitudes and practices was developed via the online tool Survey Monkey®. In addition, this research found that the gender did not impact attitudes about using technology in the classroom. Years of teaching experience was slightly related to teachers’ attitudes about technology, and there was a moderate correlation between classroom technology use and teachers’ attitudes about using technology. In addition, teachers with higher levels of education had more favorable attitudes about using technology in the classroom.
