Technology integration has long been an issue in universities. Many researchers have found that technologies are available to faculty members (Mathieu, 2003). Others discussed the need to use these available technologies (Suarez-Orozco, 2005; Suarez-Orozco & Sattin, 2007). Gaps have existed, however, in the reasons why some integrate technology while others do not. A brief discussion of the literature in these areas will be presented. The author will then discuss a current study, which hoped to shed light on the predictors of technology integration by faculty members from universities in Texas. The study attempted to address characteristics of technology using and non-technology using faculty based on attitudes pertaining to technology, proficiency levels in technology-related tasks, and demographics. Results from the study lead to more questions, which the author wishes to address in future research studies.
