Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v12 n1 p200-209 Jan 2013
The difficulties in the effective integration of ICT in the classroom make the subject a constant challenge for modern educational systems. The "New School", an innovative new curriculum applied experimentally in Greek schools, introduces the full and effective use of ICT in all aspects of school reality. Prominent in this effort is the role of ICT teachers. Given the vague framework which describes the integration of ICT in primary schools with reformed curriculum, it is important to investigate the views of ICT teachers in relation to the aims of the Ministry of Education and the obstacles they encounter in their teaching process. The research results reveal that on one hand, there is a considerable confusion among teachers with regard to their role and on the other hand, there are several external and internal barriers to effective teaching.
