Abstract:

This study explore the relation between five types of teacher’s beliefs – constructivism, teacher self-efficacy, computer self-efficacy, self-efficacy for teaching with computers and beliefs about technology’s effectiveness on education – and the frequency and variety of use for computer’s ins- tructional purposes.
