Presentation title
Malaysian Language Teachers’ ICT Competencies
Presentation abstract
This survey was undertaken to study the levels of ICT competencies among Malaysian language teachers based on the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) framework. The sample comprised 480 primary and 281 secondary school teachers selected randomly from all states in Malaysia and the questionnaire was administered using web- based placement. The study showed high levels of reliability (alpha > .90) for the four domain constructs. Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) was used to determine construct validity and model fit with Goodness-of-Fit Index, Comparative Fit Index and Root Mean Square Error of Approximation estimates indicating good model fit and conceptual basis of the model based on ISTE standards. The findings of the study showed significant differences (p < .05) between primary and secondary school language teachers' ICT competencies in two domains, i.e. technological concepts and operational skills, and social, ethics and security skills. Overall, the level of ICT skills among language teachers differed significantly between primary and secondary schools in Malaysia. The level of ICT skill sets based on the ISTE standards did not differ significantly among language teachers in Malaysia, comprising those teaching Bahasa Malaysia, English language, Chinese, Tamil, Arabic and other languages.
