Study: Teachers Love EdTech, They Just Don’t Use It

By on November 9, 2013

I had a teacher recently say to me “It seems like EdTech is taking over”. Mulling that thought over brought to mind a lot of different possible responses.

First off: the teacher who said this is older, approaching the end of their career, and not very tech-aware at all. Not just not tech-savvy, but not interested in becoming tech-savvy, either. A bit later in our discussion, this particular person admitted that they thought that technology could help improve students’ learning, but that still didn’t make them interested in it.

While I’d probably place this person in the minority of teachers, it got me thinking. Is edtech really taking over? Are the majority of teachers integrating tech, or are there still a lot of ‘old school’ folks out there shunning tech?
