A survey of 1,000 randomly selected K-12 teachers throughout the nation brought the following results:
- Teachers are using computers more for both administrative and instructional purposes, but administrative uses appear to predominate.
- Teachers noted that most of their technology training has focused on administrative applications.
- More than 60 percent indicated that there were too few computers available in their classrooms.
Would the results of this survey be the same at your school? What are your opinions on the results? Now's your chance to speak out!
You may want to give some examples of how computers are used by teachers and students at your school. You may even want to express your opinion on the way it is being used in your school.
Mostly, it would be terrific if you gave your ideas on how technology should be used in schools. Back your opinions up with your reasons because it would be so cool to pass those ideas backed up with solid reasons on to some administrators, school boards and other leaders around the nation. Let's hear from both students and teachers on this one. Plus, it would be great to hear from any other interested parties. I bet we could learn a lot from each other. So get those thinking caps on and SPEAK OUT!
