What Educators Want From Digital Instructional Tools (2.0) — Report
Our initial report, released in April 2014, helped foster a stronger understanding of the ways in which teachers were using digital instructional tools, gaps in availability, teachers’ attitudes toward digital technology, and the perceived effectiveness of these tools. To continue supporting teachers, those obtaining resources for them, and product developers, this follow-up report offers a more up-to-date analysis of how educators’ needs are being met by digital tools.
Over the past two years, educators at Windy Hill Middle School in Clermont, Florida have been transforming their teaching, tailoring instruction to students’ individual needs and interests. Students have been using new tools to learn content at their own pace and taking ownership of their learning in the process.
Heading into a new school year, I’m feeling refreshed, energized, and excited to take on new challenges. I have many things on my mind. But mostly I’m eager to see how my learners grow and make progress.
