Problems faced by Teachers

Due to the scarcity of time, overcrowded curriculum and availability of computers, students cannot always use these digital devices. Teachers have so many students to teach and along with accountability demanded of the teachers, it is simply too hard for most teachers to incorporate student computer or i-pad use as a regular part of their instructional practice. Cuban (1986) points out that using computer is often seen as obstructing the coverage of topics. Another element that prevents more teachers from using computers frequently with their students is their own limited technological skills.
