Abstract:The main purpose of this article is to find out whether a relationship exists between teachers' motivation in using ICT applications and the use of ICT applications in education. It describes the level of ICT use in their teaching. The teacher is the determining factor to, whether or not, deploy new technologies. A questionnaire is designed to measure this, with the aid of several factors from the literature. The questionnaire is carried out at 6 primary schools in the Twente region. Different variables such as the adoption of ICT, vision of education, teacher vision and school vision, have been measured. Valence, Instrumentality and Expectancy are also looked at. Together they form the VIE model. The variables are analyzed with a two variable Pearson Correlation Coefficient and a regression analysis. The main conclusion that emerges from this study is that the ICT level of teachers is explained by basic skills for 62%. If the fundamentals to use ICT are not present, teachers really don’t use ICT. Teachers have good self-knowledge about the skills they possess in ICT use. Those who think they are skilled with ICT, use ICT more often. They also use ICT more frequently if they fancy themselves to be able to. General ICT use is estimated to be higher than the use of the interactive whiteboard, while 76% does have an interactive whiteboard. The interactive whiteboard is used in classical form the most. The computer is used mostly individual. In addition, 35% of teachers do not have computers when they need them. This research provides insight into the motivation, motives, and thoughts about implementation of ICT.
