According to a recent survey by the University of Phoenix College of Education, which was conducted online by Harris Poll, two out of every five K-12 teachers rate their educational technology skills as average or below average, and only 15 percent of them gave themselves an A.
“Teachers are deliberate and thoughtful in their approach to
student learning, and with continuing advancements in technology, it can be
difficult for districts and teachers to determine the best way to effectively
use these tools,” Dean of Educational Technology at the University of Phoenix
College of Education Kathy Cook said. “The good news is that technology
integration has become a substantial component to teacher preparation and
continuing education programs for teachers. Social media has also provided new
ways for teachers to share ideas for technology integration in classrooms.”
The use of technology in the classroom is on an upward trend
and is reshaping the student experience in schools while redefining education
and classroom learning. However, many teachers feel as though they are missing
out on important opportunities due to their lack of technology skills.
half of K-12 teachers rely on technology in their classrooms.
