  • The report summarizes selected findings from two different national surveys—one of business and nonprofit leaders and another of current college students.

  • What do teachers that use technology believe (as it pertains to teaching with technology)?

    This will read a lot like a pro-education technology post because it (more or less) is. I tried to get in the head of both teachers skeptical of “edtech” and teachers that have embraced it full-on. I’ve speculated before why some teachers are against technology in learning. This time I thought I’d take a look at the other side and see what kind of beliefs a teacher that uses technology with vision, expertise, or enthusiasm might believe.

    Of course, not all of these will be true for all teachers. Many of these can be thought of as underlying assumptions of technology use in learning. It doesn’t mean, though, that these statements are all accurate. This is–as is all reality–a matter of interpretation.

The early weeks hold promise and high hopes, both often curtailed when the first assignments are graded. The final weeks find us somewhere between being reluctant or relieved to see a class move on. There is an inexplicable but evident interaction between our teaching persona and the persona a class develops throughout a semester. Some structural factors influence both: among them—the type and level of a course, the discipline, the time of day, and whether the students are a cohort or a unique collection of individuals. “
