South Africa participated in the Second Information Technology in Education Study (SITES 2006) - a large scale international survey on the ICT practices of schools around the world. SITES 2006 did not focus on the unique human experiences and practices of teachers regarding ICTs on a contextual qualitative level. The aim of this investigation was to obtain an in-depth context sensitive understanding of ICT pedagogical practices and experiences of Grade 8 Mathematics and Science teachers at eight different types of schools in the North-West Province of South Africa. We used the computer assisted data analysis program Atlas.ti™ to analyse interview data and constructed an integrated data set which identified four main categories of data related to the ICT pedagogical practices and experiences of teachers: (i) Context Barriers, (ii) Context Enablers, (ii) ICT Barriers, and (iv) ICT Enablers. We explore these categories through observations, photographs and quotations from the interviews.
