Question: What are perceived obstacles to teachers’ integrating technologies into the curriculum?
Answer:> Lack of time within a class period (Bauer & Kenton, 2005).
> Lack of access to technology (Bauer & Kenton, 2005; Honan, 2008; Stolle, 2008; Zhao et al., 2002).
> Lack of technical support (Bauer & Kenton, 2005; Ertmer et al, 1999); Stolle, 2008; Zhao et al, 2002).
> Lack of time to plan for integrating ICTs into instruction (Ertner et al., 1999).
> Lack of time to teach basic computing skills (Bauer & Kenton, 2005); Warschauer et al., 2004).
> Lack of incentives to integrate technology (Zhao et al., 2002).
Two other problems in integrating technology into the classroom: professional development on how to integrate technology and lack of time to integrate ICTs because of high stakes testing.
Comment: The latter two problems are especially important. RayS.
