Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) today announced the results of the third annual Educator Confidence Report, a survey of over 1,200 teachers and school and district administrators which investigates key issues including educator sentiment, technology readiness, community engagement and the state of the teaching profession.

The survey reveals 65% of teachers are confident in their ability to effectively use educational technology resources in the classroom, a 7% increase from 2016. However, while almost all (98%) respondents use some form of digital content, they acknowledge that there are still roadblocks preventing them from realizing technology’s full potential in the classroom. Among the largest barriers to effective education technology integration are lack of time to plan for implementation of digital resources into instruction (46%), a shortage of devices in the classroom (40%), and lack of access to technology-focused professional development (48%).
