The goal of the study was to explore experienced teachers ICT-based teaching experience in relation to their perceptions of barriers and facilitators towards teaching in an ICT enhanced environment after a full academic year of using ICT in the classroom. To achieve this we conducted a qualitative analysis of data collected using structured personal interviews.
