Abstract

Abstract: Results of an online anonymous survey for teachers using computers (N=991) are presented and discussed. The survey was designed to determine respondents' perceptions of what impedes on technology integration at school. The results suggest that "lack of time" has been perceived by the respondents as the most important impediment, followed by "lack of software" and "lack of equipment". However, most of the respondents did not offer "smaller teaching load" as the solution to the problem; instead, "more equipment", "more funding" and "more professional development" were proposed as the ways to improve the situation with technology integration.
