Is technology improving teaching?

Monday, December 12th, 2016

Despite the proliferation of devices in the classroom, whether through bring-your-own-device or district-led one-to-one programs, we still need to study how these devices are deployed and what their impact has been. A recent study of more than 880,000 students analyzed each school’s documents and data, conducted surveys of administrators, teachers and students, and reviewed surveys that the schools conducted.

Bottom line, “when educators speak of their success, they rarely lead with technology. Instead, they talk about personalization, student engagement, and the role of teachers—all of these supported by technology.”
