Abstract

© 2020 Laila Mohebi, Fatima Bailey. This study offers a synthesis of critical elements of Bem´s self-perception theory in an educational context. Ultimately people understand their beliefs, attitudes and perceptions by understanding their own behaviour and the circumstances behind it. Thus, Bem’s theory is integral in gaining a better understanding of pre-service teachers’ perceptions regarding their TPACK (Technology, Pedagogy and Content Knowledge) dispositions and capabilities. This study explores various experiments. It highlights applications of the theory to the field of education and field experience. It provides a comparative analysis of cognitive dissonance theory and self-perception theory, as both are valuable frameworks for education. Results yielded from this study could potentially impact the way in which ministries, institutions and schools develop educational policies and manage educational programs.
