Exploring the use of computer technology in a Caribbean context: Views of preservice teachers

Pier Angeli Junor Clarke, Georgia State University, USA


Abstract
This article presents a qualitative study of five preservice secondary school mathematics (PSSM) teachers in an English-speaking Caribbean context. The major goal of this study was to investigate the experiences and perceptions of the PSSM teachers as they explored the use of computer technology (CT) in their mathematics instructional practices, and to identify factors they consider necessary for successful integration of CT in mathematics instruction. These teachers faced similar challenges of developed and other developing countries in their exploration. They suggested that CT use in secondary schools is needed because of its benefits for both students and teachers and to stimulate interest, motivation and improvement in their students’ performance.
