PRELIMINARY STUDY FOR TECHNOLOGY ENHANCED LEARNING: COMPARATIVE STUDY OF ENGLAND AND NORTHERN CYPRUS
The purpose of this paper is to present the preliminary study findings from an ongoing PhD study. In this paper, the researcher presents the preliminary study that was carried out with a number of schools in England and Northern Cyprus in order to identify the background or big pictures of each country in terms of available ICT tools that are being used by teachers in their teaching, trainings and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and support that they have received and their integration stage of ICT. A survey method was employed for this preliminary study. A sample of 117 teachers out of 198 was participated to this study. The researcher of this study developed a questionnaire. A descriptive analysis of data reveals that the two countries are very different in their use of ICT and training and support that they have received.
