Percepción de profesores de universidad pública sobre el uso de las tecnologías de información aplicadas a la educación
Technology affects in a different way social, scholar and economic levels, depending on economic and cultural situation: educational sector is a clear example, which features a continued evolution. Educational development leads many educators, centres and universities to admit the necessity of change. The argue that the use of technology is a key to educational renewal. One of the the principal challenges is their implementation in colleges as an educational tool, what is partially due to non-technical factors. Many good initiatives have serious handicaps, resistance and frustration. One of most important obstacle is the lack of a deep understanding of IT nature, development and support processes for self-teaching at individual and group levels. This research aims to know the teachers' perception on the use of educational technology, as well as the reasons why they can even put up resistance before these changes; the benefits thy consider obtainable with the use of such a technology. Several way to implement educational IT are proposed.
