Abstract

This brief paper presents the views of a focus group of teachers who discuss their perceptions of three phases of technology in the elementary classroom: (1) technology use; (2) technology integration; (3) technology teaching. Each teacher discusses his or her experiences in a three-year study in a Network of Innovative Schools (NIS) elementary school. They outline motivators (The Good) and inhibitors (The Bad) for their technology experiences and apply them to a researcher-constructed continuum. The data will also be presented on the most helpful assistance the teachers had: a professional development (growth) action plan. Lastly, the teachers comment on what they would do better if they had the opportunity to do “it” all over again (The Ugly).
