Key points conveyed –

  • 91% of teachers have computers in the classroom.
  • Just 20% of the teachers feel they have the right level of technology in the classroom. (which is quite disappointing)
  • 81% of the teachers believe that using tablets in classroom enhances the learning.
  • 53% of the students want to use mobile to make learning more engaging. (It’s sad on the part of teachers that we are not using this handy tool that can work wonders in the direction of educating students and loading them with skills of the 21st century!)
  • Almost a third of all college students take at least one online course.
  • 43% of teachers have used online games in the classroom which raised the test score of the students (I guess using games makes learning fun and works as a motivational tool thereby enhancing the performance.)
  • Only 29% of teachers use social networks as compared to 80% of the college professors. (which is quite surprising to me!)
  • 6 in 10 students have used a digital textbook.
  • 76% of teachers believe that technology in the classroom enhances the material being taught while 77% believe that it boost students motivation to learn and perform. (This clearly indicate that we teachers are slowly getting our grip on the technology and understand the importance of using it in our classrooms)

What are views on the statistics?

  1. Dear Future Teacher,
    Very cool graphic! Thanks for sharing and thanks for putting the highlights underneath it. As a teacher in a school with a 1:1 technology plan implemented, it is very true that technology enhances what is going on in class and increases engagement and motivation. The key is to use it intentionally and effectively…and that is the hard part. Your lessons need to be well planned and engaging, and that adds fire to the motivation that technology brings. Give them real dynamic reasons and purposes for the technology.
    You seem like you are well on your way to being an awesome 21st Century teacher! You are awesome! Keep on teaching, Future Teacher!
    Love, Teacher
