Abstract

This study examined family and consumer sciences secondary school teachers' self-reported knowledge, ability, interests, feelings, beliefs, and teaching preferences toward interactive teleteaching when using curriculum competencies. Two hundred fifty family and consumer sciences secondary school teachers in the state of Iowa were randomly selected. Of these, 112 teachers became the data producing sample of this study. Results indicated that there were no significant differences among teachers' self-reported knowledge, ability, interests, feelings, and beliefs toward interactive teleteaching when compared to their years of experience as an educator. In addition, there were no significant differences among teachers' self-reported knowledge, ability, feelings, and beliefs toward interactive teleteaching when compared to their education. However, there were significant differences among teachers' interests toward interactive teleteaching when compared to their education (highest degree held). Regarding teaching preferences, results indicated that the majority of teachers prefer to teach with one or two simultaneous remote sites.
