The rapid evolution and constant change of technology is creating both opportunities and complications in the educational system. Schools appear to be in a never ending cycle of playing technological catch up as digital innovations emerge. However, schools that have technology and are using it often fail to provide proper professional development, and therefore, teachers become frustrated with technology integration. This study explored how educators viewed and used technology in their classrooms. The participants were K-12 teachers with various views on how to use technology with their current hardware and software within their classrooms. Results suggest that educators recognize the need for technology, but lacked the skills needed to successfully integrate it into the classroom.
