ICT coordinators of 8 Teacher Education Colleges were interviewed about the integration of educational technology within their colleges. In this study, challenges of the implementation process were sought. The coordinators related to various stakeholders and processes -- regarding the ministry, the college and the practice schools; referring to management, staff and students; and considering policy, curriculum and the pedagogical and technological practices in the colleges. Their main concerns were a resistance to change or learning, budget constraints, infrastructure and technical problems and a traditional use of educational technology. Consequently, questions are raised regarding the approach of ICT implementation within Teacher Education Colleges.
