The Efficiency of the New Mathematics Curriculum towards Saudi Mathematics Educators’ Attitudes of Using Computers in Secondary Schools pdf
This researchaimed to explore the efficiency of the new mathematics curriculum towards Saudi mathematics educators’ attitudes of utilising computers in Secondary Schools. Twenty-three male teachers from the Namas Provence took part in the research. A questionnaire with 24 statements (20 statements using a Likert scale + 4 open-ended questions) was used to assess the mathematics educators’ attitudes towards the new curriculum, the role of the Ministry of Education,their experience and attitude towards computers,and the use of computers in the classroom.Results revealed that the teachers had positive attitudes towards using computers in the classroom. The teachers felt confident in using computers; however, they would like more training on how to use technology in the classroom. In addition, the educators believed that the students would benefit from training in using computers. Finally, the educators answered that more computers in the classroom were needed. The research concludes that the Ministry of Education need to provide the educators with training to ensure that the new curriculum is successfully implemented into the mathematics classroom. This research involved only male teachers working in male secondary schools and it is necessary to conduct a follow-up research with female educators to gain a full picture of the attitudes towards the new curriculum. Furthermore, to gain a more complete picture of the use of technology in the classroom, measurements of the number of times per week that educators use computers need to be provided.
