Educators’ use of a wide variety of digital tools and platforms–from instructional videos to learning management systems to openly licensed content–has risen over the past year, according to a new survey.
The survey, released this week, also asked educators about the biggest barriers they face in using ed tech. Fifty-two percent said they see “lack of time to plan for integration” of digital resources in instruction as an obstacle.
n addition, a shortage of professional development and training focused specifically on using digital curriculum was also cited as a common hurdle to sound ed-tech use, the survey found.
Yet despite those hurdles, the survey found that from 2017 to 2018, teachers’ use of a variety of ed-tech devices, strategies, and systems have risen.
