TEACHER PERCEPTIONS FOR USING COMPUTER AND MEDIA LEARNING (IKT) IN MACEDONIAN LANGUAGE TEACHING CLASS IN PRIMARY EDUCATION
The recent reform of education in the Republic of Macedonia has brought innovation in the use of technology in the teaching process as well as in the use of computers as a tool, but also as a method and a way to learn. Also, projects and curricula for computer learning have been developed in both primary and secondary schools.
In this context, this theoretically-empirical research combines the reality of the use of ICT tools in Macedonian language classes in elementary schools with segments defined in Macedonian language curriculum. With the empirical, descriptive and conclusive results gained in this research, where 88 Macedonian language teachers in the primary schools of Skopje, Gostivar and Stip were surveyed, a statistical difference (sig = 0.028) was observed in teacher attitudes per city in terms of level and the impact of ICT tools on the productivity of students in Macedonian language classes as well as the statistical difference (sig = 0.043) in teachers' attitudes by their age. In the end, the hierarchy of IKT tools was determined according to their level of use and the hierarchy of skills developed by the use of ICT tools in Macedonian language classes in elementary schools.
