Most teachers incorporate some form of information and communication technologies (ICT) into their teaching and learning practice. This study reviews teachers' overall perceptions of ICT, including their views on professional development, barriers they encounter and successes they have achieved. The study was undertaken at an Australian private school, with 39 online questionnaire participants and 4 interviewees. The data suggested that teachers have a positive perception towards the benefits of ICT integration in their school administration and into their classrooms, however, there is a negative perception regarding the ongoing obstacles teachers encounter in gaining appropriate or relevant professional development and on ICT integration.
