Abstract

Teachers play a significant role in integrating information and communication technology (ICT) in schools, and motivated teachers reflect higher levels of ICT use in their classroom. In this study, we used semistructured interviews to investigate elementary school teachers' ICT use and their motivators for doing so. The participants consisted of 101 elementary school teachers from 24 elementary schools located in the Turkish capital. We discuss and analyze our findings in order to understand the current state of teachers' ICT use and their motivations for using ICT. An overall conclusion from the results is that more concrete encouragement, support and opportunities must be developed to increase teachers' motivation to improve the level and quality of ICT use in classrooms.
