Infographic Illustrates Technology's Impact on Education

Back to school used to bring images of blackboards, chalk, pencils and paper to mind. But now, with the influence of technology in the K12 classroom, a more up-to-date image would have to include sophisticated teaching tools like interactive white boards, tablet computers, e-readers, and PCs. Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider ( experienced with K12/E-Rate, has created an infographic using statistics from two recent surveys that show the importance of technology in today's K12 classroom.

Findings include:

  • 74% of teachers say technology enables them to reinforce and expand on content.
  • 74% of teachers that say technology helps them motivate students to learn.
  • 68% of teachers express a desire for more classroom technology.
  • 65% of teachers claim technology allows them to demonstrate something they cannot show in any other way.
  • 43% of teachers in AP/NWP classrooms report that their students use tablet computers to complete assignments.
