Currently, there is a growing demand from educational institutions for the introduction of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the teaching-learning process. However, the success of the projects aimed at achieving this purpose depends on how well teachers and parents accept this idea. This study analyses the perceptions of 62 teachers and 1002 parents in relation to the use of ICT in the teaching-learning process in terms of attitude, usage and beliefs. The results suggest a positive perception from both groups, with some significant differences observed both between teachers and parents, and at different educational levels.
