This report looks at how teachers are integrating new technology and tools into their classroom practice. It identifies common benefits and challenges in the collective experience of educators throughout the country. The report draws on a survey of teachers in 38 states, interviews with teachers and administrators, and school and classroom observations. This research included teachers in public schools, charter public schools, alternative education programs, and private schools. Teachers reported that time; thoughtful planning and support at the school- and district-level; and ongoing, relevant professional development are key to the success or stagnation of efforts to integrate technology.
The information in this report may be of interest to policy makers, researchers, and other leaders looking to better understand how teachers across the country are using technology.
