This paper reports and discusses the findings of an examination that asked teachers from different disciplines to respond to survey items relating to their background and perceptions of technology integration in their courses. This quantitative study investigated whether teachers’ self-efficacy about their roles in classroom could be affected or not when they use technology in their courses. Teachers’ thoughts were also compared based on their characteristics. Findings indicate that K-5 teachers tend to have more positive opinions about technology-based classrooms than other content areas. In general, teachers are aware of necessity of technology in classroom settings.
