Abstract: This interpretive qualitative case study explores secondary teachers’ experiences with technology integration in their classrooms. Research questions examined technological experiences, learning processes, and teacher perspectives. Interviews, observations, and document analysis revealed themes across participants and the data. The conclusions discuss the frustrations, successes, and experiences of the group across a school year. Recommendations are broadly applicable to organizations integrating technologies. Several themes emerged from the data: peripherals; guidance of instruction; software; barriers to integration.
