This study focused the Technology Intensive Enhancement Series (TIES), at the University of Hawaii, a program meant to develop technology proficient teachers who mentored others in infusing technology into curriculum. TIES and the Hawaii Department of Education developed a partnership where participants on sabbatical were able to focus their time on developing their knowledge and skills to integrate technology. Three case studies of participants showed the impact of the TIES program on a teacher’s ability to integrate technology. Specifically, this study measured the enabling and limiting factors of technology integration and whether TIES was able to address those factors. Through data gathered from pre and post non-participant observations, pre and post surveys, a one-on-one interview, a collection of documentation and a focus group session, the study showed that TIES was able to address some important issues.
