Faculty Confident in Using Technology, Students Lack Confidence

In Campus Technology's second annual Teaching with Technology Survey, faculty were asked how they feel about tech in the classroom, where they go for IT support and more. An overwhelming majority said they are "absolutely confident" or "very confident" in their tech skills, and a smaller fraction consider their skills "adequate." A majority of faculty rated students’ abilities with technology as being “average”, with only a third of respondents rating students’ technological skills as being “excellent” or “above average”. However, the study states that a majority of faculty feel there is plenty of IT support they can come to for education technology assistance on campus, such as a help desk or IT department.
