Title High school students' and teachers' computer training: Awareness, participation and motives
Author Jasmina Vrkic Dimic, Ana Marija Rogic
Abstract
The aim of the study was to examine students' and teachers' awareness of the possibilities of computer training (both inside and outside of the school) and their participation in the training. Besides that, it was determined the readiness of high school students and teachers to participate in computer training, as well as the motives for computer training. Finally, we examined the influence of many monitored independent variables (socio-demographic characteristics) within the sample of examinees (particularly for the sample of students and for the sample of teachers), and the significance of identified differences between the research sample of high school students and the sample of high school teachers. 
The study started with the assumption that high school students are at an advantage compared to their high school teachers when it comes to tested dependent variables: therefore, high school students have wider opportunities to build their computer skills, they are better informed about them, they show a greater willingness to participate in computer training and they are differently motivated. The analyses of research results showed more cases of significant differences between the two samples of examinees and the number of statistically significant differences among subjects were found even within each samples based on the monitored socio-demographic characteristics. After the presentation and interpretation of the research results the research hypothesis is partially confirmed, and the initial hypothesis was corrected and formulated new one, based on the results of empirical research. Ultimately, the need for further researches of this issue is expressed, as well as possible future directions.
