Abstract

This communication aims to present the results of a qualitative study on the factors that influence ICT integration at the k-6 levels. The research aimed to identify which factors influence technology integration in elementary schools of Quebec, Canada, and to understand whether some of these factors had more impact at certain teaching levels than others. Thirty-one elementary teachers and twelve principals, working for seven school boards, participated in this study. Data was collected through an on-line questionnaire, interviews, classroom observations and a week-long technology use grid filled in twice by teachers. Data was analyzed using a content analysis procedure. The results show that while certain factors seem to influence positively or negatively all teaching levels, some factors had more impact at certain teaching levels than others. The results also show that integrating technology at the lower grade levels was more of a challenge than with the older students.
