The thesis is structured as a portfolio in the form of an «artifact collection». The portfolio includes reviews by the research advisor and two experts, as well as a research article which is «the central artifact of the portfolio». The article explores the relationship between the personal characteristics of primary school teachers (particularly their resistance to change) and their use of ICT in the teaching process. For that purpose, we polled 347 primary school (third grade) teachers and analyzed the poll data. SEM analysis showed that the teachers’ ICT skills are positively correlated with their use of ICT in class, while resistance to change is the mediator of the relationship. At the same time, the resistance to change is negatively correlated with the use of ICT in class and not correlated with their personal use of ICT in any way whatsoever. In summary, even the teachers with good ICT skills do not seek to use their skills in class and to change their professional routine. One should consider this when adopting innovative changes to the teaching process, as well as pay particular attention to teachers’ resistance to change as an internal barrier to innovation.
