This study represents research dealing with differences in the instructional computer use, experience, self-efficacy, perception of leadership and computer attitudes of teachers who are either digital immigrants or digital natives. Utilizing previous studies (Piper, 2000) this paper examines the differences between groups on the variables influencing teachers' decisions to utilize technology. This study uses analysis of the variance to determine the differences in instructional computer use, experience, self-efficacy perception of school leadership and computer attitudes based on the demographics of teachers, primarily age. By understanding the differences in teacher's beliefs and use of instructional technology along with their differences in experience and attitudes toward instructional technology administrators can determine how best to train and develop teachers so instructional technology in the digital native world will happen in a formal educational setting.
