In 2017, Promethean interviewed over 1,600 educators to gain an in-depth look into the current use of technology in education. The resulting report provides teachers and educational leaders with a broader awareness of the technologies, attitudes, and trends shaping pedagogy in the UK.
Some key findings
- Fewer than 1% of teachers and 0% of head teachers believe there is no place for technology in the classroom
- Only 5% of teachers believe that they receive full training and support when it comes to educational technology
- While 100% of head teachers are confident they have an established vision for how to achieve their strategic goals, classroom. Teachers don’t share this conviction; with half stating that there is either no clear strategy, or, if there is, they are not aware of it
- 48% of teachers are using technology to facilitate students learning or working remotely.
But, while the majority of teachers see the benefits of using technology in the classroom, budget cuts are making its implementation, maintenance, and use difficult. As a result, 8% of educators think that the use of technology in education will start to decline.
