New Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for teaching is an enabling technology with a possibility for increased learning outcome in engineering education. The paper identifies some possible factors that enable or inhibit teachers' use of ICT in their teaching practice. The results are based on seven semi-structured interviews conducted amongst teachers at manufacturing engineering education, the analytical framework derived from the main research study; an international education monitoring project. The study was framed by the use of actor-network theory. The study shows that leadership /administration has had great influence on what tools were selected for aiding teaching processes, and that this has led to both increased use and non-use of ICT in their teaching practice. Controlling students do also seem like an encouraging factor for using technology in teaching.
