Notes

Abstract: This study investigated factors predicting the intentions of English Language Learner (ELL) teachers to use Google Earth for language development instruction. The researchers used quantitative research methods using an electronic survey (n=40), with a 28% return rate. Results indicated that attitude was a significant predictor of ELL teachers’ intentions to use Google Earth during instruction in a rural New England state. Additional findings indicate that when comparing teachers who intended or were using Google Earth during instruction to those who did not, there were significant differences between groups. However, 95% of ELL teachers within this rural state received no training with Google Earth, and 85% reported wanting to know more about Google Earth for instruction. This study has implications for training programs and professional development for ELL instruction in rural states for the use of Google Earth as a communication instructional tool.
