This paper presents a conceptual framework regarding the factors enhancing teachers’ adoption and use of ICT in teaching and learning, derived from an in-depth survey of the related literature. This aim is achieved by identifying the factors enhancing teachers’ adoption and use of ICT in teaching and learning. The main result of this study is a framework derived from the existing literature listing the factors enhancing teachers’ adoption and use of ICT in teaching and learning. The findings help to articulate issues related to teachers’ adoption and use of ICT and in this way contributes to the development of programs designed to address the relevant issues.
