"Teachers' Use of Educational Technology in U.S. Public Schools: 2009"
Teachers in high-poverty schools are less likely to use technology to keep in touch with parents and students throughout the school year than teachers in schools with low poverty, says a U.S. Department of Education report.
Ninety-two percent of teachers in low-poverty schools used e-mail to address individual concerns with parents, compared with 48 percent of teachers in high- poverty schools. Sixty-nine percent of teachers in schools with low poverty sent out group updates through e-mail, while only 39 percent of teachers in high-poverty schools reported delivering information that way.
Data was gathered from a national survey of teachers completed during the winter and spring of 2009 by the National Center for Education Statistics.
