Abstract: The authors explore qualified teachers’ responses to a questionnaire on technology-related issues in order to identify future research areas. Variables examined include: satisfaction levels with ICT education in pre- and post- qualification courses; with technology in classrooms; technical assistance available in schools; choices for use of state funding; and relationships of gender, level taught, self-reported competency, and self-identified barriers to technology use with the selected data. Findings suggest some areas that may be worthy of further investigation, for example: differing levels of satisfaction with pre-service education, and emphasis on reducing pupil/teacher ratio, rather than on technology enhancement, as a preferred option for funding.
