How Teachers Use Technology in the Classroom

I wanted to share the following infographic that I found on Mashable.

According to Mashable:
PBS Learning Media, in preparation for Digital Learning Day on Wednesday, Feb. 6, conducted a national survey of pre-K to 12th grade teachers to find out how many incorporate technology into their day-to-day classroom activities.
I few of the statistics that I find interesting are:
  • 74% of teachers say the "Educational technology is a student-motivator"
  • 69% of teachers say that educational technology helps them "do much more than ever before" for their students
  • 65% of teachers say that educational technology helps them "demonstrate something that they can't show in any other way."
I also think it's interesting that over "two-thirds of teachers want more technology in the classroom." It looks like very few teachers are not wanting to embrace technology which is an incredible thing, but I guess the next big bridge to cross are those concerning bandwidth and limited accessibility to some online resources due to school and/or IT department policies.

Take a look at the rest of the results below and do you think the use of educational technology will continue to grow?
Please visit Mashable and PBS Learning Media for additional information on this infographic.
