The paper describes the results of a comparative research study of elementary school teachers’ attitudes to ICT between 2004 and 2015. Teachers indicated their attitude to ICT by selecting from a six-degree scale ranging from agreement to disagreement. Teachers’ replies in the monitored years were statistically processed including a cluster analysis. The results indicate an anticipated positive shift towards more intensive ICT use, improved virtual communication and use of the internet. According to their consent indicated for various statements, teachers can be divided into two different groups – clusters.

Keywords: teachers’ attitudes to ICT, comparative research, scale ranging, cluster analysis
