The purpose of this paper is to examine and describe the change process as technology is implemented in secondary science and mathematics classrooms. This paper synthesizes the results from two studies, a qualitative study on implementation concerns of secondary science teachers resulting from the use telecommunications (Slough, 1998) and a quantitative study on technology implementation concerns of middle and secondary mathematics teachers and potential teachers of first-year algebra in North Carolina (Chamblee, 1996). The Concerns Based Adoption Model (CBAM) provided a theoretical framework for both studies.
