The introduction of Information and Communication Technology
(ICT) in Greek primary education appears to be carried
out in the midst of a general uncertainty, mainly on the
part of the teachers, who will have to cope with a new teaching
tool and a new teaching philosophy that very few of
them have learned to apply. The aim of this study was to elucidate
the perceptions and the attitudes of Greek teachers towards
the use of ICT, and to explore the potential of the integration
of the new technologies in public primary education.
The sample consisted of 951 male and female primary school
teachers from all over the country. The results reveal that although
the majority of the respondents believes that ICT is a
useful tool for teaching and learning, and generally agrees
with its exploitation in schools, it appears that they are not
yet fully convinced about the advisability of the immediate
introduction of new technologies in primary education.
