A new survey from ConnectEDU reveals that parents in the state of New York view the top benefits of the Common Core as “improvement of my child’s long-term success” (19.4 percent) and “greater college and career readiness” (18.4 percent). A large percentage (42.2 percent) of parents believe that technology can help ease the transition to the Common Core curriculum.

Additional survey findings surrounding parents’ technology preferences revealed:

  • A desire to implement classroom technology that would allow tracking of their child's progress in real-time (44.9 percent), as well as: Educational tools to use at home (32.6 percent) Notification if their child is falling behind (26.6 percent) Personalized coursework recommendations (23.8 percent)
  • Parents would take advantage of educational technology that recommends supplemental coursework designed to improve their child's performance in the classroom (37 percent)
