Trends in research on teacher education in information and communication technologies: a bibliometric analysis

Keywords: Education; teacher training; technology of information and communication; bibliometric analysis; Web of Science.

Abstract

The aim of this article is to identify trends in research on teacher education in information and communication technologies in the Web of Science. An observational, descriptive, and retrospective study was conducted on 402 articles published between 2000 and 2021 using bibliometric analysis. The Web of Science database was used to identify worldwide scholarly production on ICT teacher education. The results show an exponential growth in scholarly production, demonstrating the leading role of universities in creating knowledge on teacher education in the field of information and communication technologies, with most of their contributions published in high-impact journals. The conclusion is that the trends reveal the interest in knowledge creation in the field of study and that it is a major pedagogical trend in the global education ecosystem, increasing its relevance to teaching. However, there are limitations due to the preparation of teachers to use these technologies and their lack of integration in the classroom, recognizing that modern technologies are being used in teacher education to transform traditional teaching methods to enhance student learning.
