This is the suite of the precedent article (How Teachers use Wikipedia?) about the use of ICT by secondary US teachers.

Given the degree to which teachers are embracing and using digital tools, it is not surprising that they are making these tools a key part of their teaching practices.  In addition to desktop and laptop computers and classroom projectors, significant portions of these teachers report cell phones, digital cameras and recorders, e-readers and tablet computers being part of the learning experience.  Yet they also note obstacles they face in using digital tools effectively in the classroom, ranging from time constraints to school internet filters.

The survey notes :

Some groups of AP and NWP teachers are more likely to employ the more collaborative online tools asked about in the survey. For instance, the youngest teachers in this group (those under age 35) are the most likely to have students develop or share work on a website, wiki or blog (45% v. 34% of teachers age 55 and older). They are also more likely than the oldest teachers to have students participate in online discussions (45% v. 32% of teachers age 55 and older) and use collaborative web-based tools such as GoogleDocs to edit work (41% v. 34% of teachers age 55 and older).

Read the article to discover the obstacles encountered by teachers in the use of technology in the classroom as well as disciplines / subjects using the more or less ICT in the classroom.
