We hear a lot these days about schools adopting more and more classroom technology. With today being Digital Learning Day, PBS Learning Media wanted to conduct a survey on just how many teachers are opting to introduce more tech into their classes. They’ve compiled their results into a great infographic, see for yourself.
The national survey asked pre-K to grade 12 teachers about their use of technology in the classroom. I was excited to see that 74% of teachers have opted to go digital when it comes to their classes. Classroom technology helps to eliminate distractions and guide student progress.
SmartBoards are a great craze right now, but that style of learning pays homage to the old skool way of doing things. Teachers want to do more with their classes (69% said this), and enhance collaboration between their students. That means you’ll be seeing a lot more tablets, eReaders and computers. Bring on the BYOD!
Take a look at the results for yourself. What do you think of these results?
