This study explored the impact of teacher participation in the development and use of a web-based instructional resource on computer utilization by students. The effects of participation in the technology initiative on teacher attitudes toward computers, technology proficiency, and stages of adoption of technology were also investigated. Teacher volunteers participated in a treatment group that received a professional development intervention and a comparison group that received no professional development. The Collaborate and Create intervention modeled a constructivist hands-on approach to creating technology-rich lessons based on classroom curricula and Internet technologies. These lessons were posted on-line and accessed by students of both groups of teachers, promoting the school-wide use of technology as a tool for active, directed learning.
