Why Technology Is Not Transforming Teaching

Tuesday, June 23, 2015, 2 to 3 p.m. ET

Despite a massive influx of new technology into classrooms, a mountain of evidence shows that most teachers have been painfully slow to transform the way they teach. As a result, experts say, schools and districts are rarely able to realize the type of student-centered, personalized, technology-driven learning environments that ed-tech proponents describe.

Join Education Week staff writer Benjamin Herold and a district practitioner to learn more about how technology is actually being used in most classrooms, why it is not transforming teaching, and what can be done.
