Teacher discomfort with new technology study

As stated by David Nagel, in THE Journal (July 30, 2018): "A majority of teachers expressed discomfort with newer teaching practices that rely on technology and said they need more collaborative planning time with their peers, in addition to traditional PD."
Findings from the national survey of  33,000 classroom teachers include, among others:
  • 78 percent of teachers are "not very comfortable" facilitating student collaboration with digital devices.
  • 76 percent are not comfortable personalizing learning for every student.
  • 75 percent are uncomfortable creating project-based learning projects.
  • And 70 percent are uncomfortable using student data to inform instructional practices.
