Abstract

This qualitative study examined the barriers and concerns of teachers using technology in their instruction. Three teachers were selected to participate in this study. The primary data collection method is in-depth interview. The results indicated that technology had greatly supported teachers' instruction and fostered their use of more constructivist pedagogy, many obstacles still have not been addressed and need further research, especially on those related with the following five aspects: accessibility, technical problems, training and technical support, time, and pacing instruction.
