Data: How Does Teacher Tech Training Compare Across States?

Facebook Twitter Addthis

As part of the National Assessment of Educational Progress in 2015, educators and students completed background surveys that shed light on a variety of factors, including teacher training to integrate technology into instruction. Nationally, according to the surveys, most 8th grade math students had teachers who reported that they had learned some skills from professional development on the integration of technology into instruction. But only 13 percent had teachers who said they learned a lot from such training. The findings also reveal considerable state-to-state variation in ed-tech practices.
