Nine of Ten K-12 Teachers Say Personal Tech Devices Boost Learning

93 percent of teachers believe personal tech devices can link classroom learning to real-world activities and 89 percent expect they will be used in most classrooms in the next five years, according to a new nationwide survey conducted by University of Phoenix College of Education of more than 1,000 K-12 classroom teachers.

Some way that educators integrate technology into curriculum and their classrooms:

  • Seventy-nine percent of teachers have allowed students to research subjects using the Internet in class
  • Sixty-two percent have used games to simulate and supplement learning; and,
  • Nearly half (49 percent) have used web-based tools to help students improve writing and comprehension skills.
