The purpose of this study was to determine how technology use of Delaware music teachers was affected by accessibility, previous technology background/experience, gender, grade level, and teaching specialty area. Professional development and perceived needs for training and access were examined to determine effects on use and integration. K-12 music teachers (N=53) in the state of Delaware completed an online measure to assess these factors. Results suggest a) technology access is not an indicator of technology use, b) access to recording equipment could be an indicator of overall technology use, c) teachers received training on use and operation of certain technologies, while application and implementation were often not included and desired, and d) previous training and experience is a strong predictor of technology use.
