Description Preparation for a lesson is an integral part of the work of teachers of all disciplines. In the last twenty years, the concept of form and preparation of teaching has changed. Due to the potential of information technologies the multimedia and visualisation comes into play. The paper is focused on specifics of lesson preparation of technical subjects at vocational school and it aims to assess the current status of the issue in the Czech Republic and to present the main results of the research focused on the concept and structure of the written and digital materials prepared for a lesson by teachers of technical vocational subjects. Even if the teachers have a large number of possibilities to use the digital tools our survey has shown that the preparation for teaching has mostly the form of presentations created in PowerPoint. The core of such prepared materials is concentrated mostly on teaching content. The use of innovative teaching method are negligible. The reason for such state could be due to the fact that teachers of vocational subjects belong in many cases to a generation that does not have a deep-rooted relationship with information and communication technologies.
