Abstract

This article addresses the effects of requiring action research projects in the education of classroom teachers as mandated by a graduate program in elementary education. The Master of Arts Program in Elementary Education with a specialization in Mathematics, Science and Technology (MST), is designed for experienced elementary school teachers who seek the skills and knowledge, and attitudes and dispositions, to integrate the teaching of these areas. Technology is defined as design technology (DT), which encompasses the study of the technological world that inventors, engineers, and other innovators have created. It includes within it information technology, the integration of skills that require the use of computer applications to enhance student learning of mathematics and science.
