AbstractThis study provides new images of teachers who are pioneers in the use of information technology in the classes they teach. This study looks at teachers at a high school which is a leader in using information technology in the classroom. The findings indicate that most of the teachers participating in this study were enthusiastic about the possibilities that information technology holds for classroom use. Examples are given of how information technology is impacting on teachers' work and attitudes, professional development, professionalization. intensification, discipline, and students views of the world. Teachers insights on the future of teaching and acceptable use of technology were also examined. Ten issues were identified which could determine the success or failure of the use of information technology in High Schools. These include: maintenance, inequalities, security of school information, cost and need for training, information overload, pace of change and stress, plagiarism, control by big business, finding good software, and do the benefits outweigh the disadvantages.
