The purpose of this study was to compile teachers' impressions of the barriers and/or incentives associated with the use of graphing calculators on classroom dynamics, curriculum and evaluation, training, support, and overall attitude. It goes on to state that for teachers to take on the difficult challenge of integrating technology into their teaching, there is a need to respect their professional judgment, listen to their concerns, and provide them with the time and opportunities to learn, experiment, and share.
