Information and communication technology (ICT) affects all areas of human activity. From the very beginning, ICT was present in the classroom, and today it plays very important role in the education system. This thesis defines ICT, its position in the education system and the characteristics of ICT in teaching. Since teachers are an important factor for its use, a qualitative research was conducted and its main aim was to investigate and determine teachers’ attitudes about PowerPoint presentations, smart boards and internet in teaching. The research sought to get answers about teachers’ use of ICT, ways of using it and their opinions on advantages and disadvantages of PowerPoint presentations, smart boards and internet in teaching. Using the interview method, ten elementary school teachers from Dugo Selo were questioned. The results of the study showed that teachers have positive attitudes towards using ICT in teaching. PowerPoint presentations and the internet are used for most subjects, most often for Science and Croatian language. According to the answers, the advantages of this way of teaching are that it is time-saving for the teachers, and interesting for the students. On the other hand, the research results show that teachers are aware that students are still passive. Also, teachers recognized the problem of frequent use of technology in teaching, that is reduced student concentration and work monotony.
