The eighth annual PBS teacher survey gives us a peek at how teachers just like you are using media and technology in their classrooms. The data, collected by Grunwald Associates LLC in 2010, revealed these insights:
- The Internet is quickly becoming the source for media-based instruction, with streaming and downloading of content surging.
- Teachers believe that a variety of technology devices and Web-based systems help them do their jobs better and help them to engage students in learning.
- Teachers see great potential in smart, portable devices, including laptops, tablets, e-readers and handhelds.
- Teachers are joining online professional communities to connect, collaborate and share resources with other teachers.
