Abstract

This case study invested effort in capturing individual teachers’ responses to their conceptions of technology and school policy on technology, and how they actually or intentionally used technology, to clarify what roles teachers played in the use of technology. The study indicates that the teachers’ conceptions of technology and school policy on technology had an impact on how they actually or intentionally use technology. The roles teachers played in the use of technology are Learners, Leaders, Collaborators, and Designers.
