Abstract:
Session presented on Monday, November 9, 2015 and Tuesday, November 10, 2015: Today, the amount of technology that is available to students and faculty is overwhelming. Providing a venue for students and faculty to access information and create innovative ways to present and explore content is necessary. It is essential to first determine that students and faculty value technology and the use of technology. The purpose of this study was to assess if students and faculty perceive technology as useful and ease of use in nursing education. This study used a survey design to collect data on the intent to use, usefulness and ease of use. The target population was a convenience sample of undergraduate nursing students and faculty. The results of the study will be shared. There were significant correlations found between the student’s and faculty perceptions as they related to perceived usefulness and ease of use technology.  The data provided insight into the student and faculty perceptions of how they perceive using technology in nursing school. The students’ and faculty perception of intent to use, usefulness and ease of use is supported by the perception that technology would enhance the effectiveness of teaching and learning.  The perception that technology is easy to use, thus increasing the usefulness in obtaining and utilizing technology in the classroom to engage the learner.  This session will also explore the differences between students and faculty in the use of technology and will share examples of technology activities integrated into the nursing program.
