Teacher Tech Training Need Study

Thirty-nine percent of teachers need greater training to effectively use education technology, but administrators assert that tight budgets and competing priorities are preventing them from making such investments, according to a recent survey. The research also found that teachers want to use more technology in the classroom and expect the use of cloud-based lesson delivery, virtual reality and other tech to increase over the next five years. Administrators identify connectivity and hardware issues as other major reasons for why more technology is not getting adopted in schools and districts, and communications with teachers is also barrier. When it comes to educators in the classroom, 77 percent of teachers who use different ed tech tools are not involved in the budgetary decision-making process.
