Tech use in schools study

A study that sheds light on the debates and the intersections of technology and 21st century skills from the vantage point of school-based educators.The study addresses five myths about technology use in education—particularly by teachers—and educators’ perceptions about the effects of technology use on student learning, behaviors and skills.
The findings, based on a survey of more than 1,000 U.S. K–12 teachers, principals and assistant principals, suggest that teachers have a vital role to play at the intersection of technology and 21st century expertise—modeling their confidence with technology, guiding young minds toward constructive educational purposes, and teaching students the tried and new skills for college and career readiness in a competitive world.
