Any suggestions or ideas on working with teachers who are less than enthusiastic about utilizing technology as a means to bring “more” to their lessons?

Take a lesson they are doing or are going to do and give the lesson a boost with tech, then model it for them. Are you hosting any PD? It seems that Google Forms is like a gateway drug. Once teachers see how easy it is to make and grade an assignment, they are hooked and are open to using other tools. I find that most teachers that are less than enthusiastic are afraid of failing in front of students because they are uncomfortable with tech. Try using something (tech) you know they are good at and incorporate into a lesson. Remember that tech is so overwhelming and daunting for some so positive feedback is most important for the smallest accomplishment.

If it is “more” without a direct measurable outcome, then teachers don’t have time for it.
