This research study was designed to determine the degree of use of ICT by higher education professionals and examine differences among various groups as well as reasons for these differences. A quantitative survey instrument was developed to gather demographic information and data. Participants reported they would be more likely to use technology with training/professional development. The highest reported barriers preventing the use of ICT were a lack of time, lack of necessary knowledge and skills, and budget constraints. Professional development is needed for high school teacher; it should address how to use and implement technology.

Participants stated social networks, music, pictures, and video sharing were used most often. Adversely, blogs, social news networks, and cloud computing were reported as being used rarely. The participants reported they do not receive any training for using ICT. The highest reported barriers preventing the use of ICT were a lack of time, lack of necessary knowledge and skills, and budget constraints. Reported barriers are consistent with the findings of previous studies. The certification level, and gender were not significant.

Many educators reported they would be more likely to use technology with training. Hence, the need for continual for high school teacher is paramount as current levels of are questionable according to survey results.
