Abstract: The purpose of this multiple case study is to explore teacher attitudes toward and engagement with technology as they participate in STEM professional development and subsequently enact instruction. Using the lens of cultural historical activity theory (CHAT), we examine the ways in which two middle school teachers in a rural community shifted their perspectives on technology during this process. Findings suggest that teacher attitude toward technology can be moderated through the means of a more knowledgeable other who scaffolds teacher learning and integration of technology, providing insights into the professional development needs of rural teachers.
