Abstract: In a case study involving the integration of IWBs in a small elementary school, two teachers were interviewed for their perspective on student-centered, pedagogical transformation efforts in their personal integration efforts. The interview transcripts were analyzed using a grounded-theory approach to identify salient themes of discourse for categories of concern that supported or constrained transformative teaching and learning. The text analysis indicated four systematic barriers to transformative technology integration: 1) need of time for professional learning, 2) need leadership involvement, 3) usability issues, 4) lack of supplemental resources.
