Using different levels of analysis, we identify some factors influencing the integration of digital technology in mathematics and we try to explain the contradiction between the strong political will for this integration and the weak implementation in mathematics classrooms. When one wants to change something, resistances often arise; we have identified some of them, for example, personal, institutional, symbolic and didactical resistances.
