Measuring attitudes towards ICT in school

10.07.2012

Teachers who report confidence and competence at using digital technologies may not be as confident or skilled at using new technologies for educational purposes, or to promote learning. This is one of the findings of a teacher survey, carried out as part of the iTEC framework. The project carried out two surveys, designed to measure teachers’ and students’ attitudes to the use of technology in the classroom. The results of the surveys have been published, and are now available to download.

The aim of the surveys, which received responses from over 1,200 teachers, and 284,000 individual ratings from students, was to find out how both teachers and students would like to see educational technologies deployed. The survey results will play a role in the future design of the iTEC project. In a broader context, it is hoped also that the survey will influence the development of the classroom of the future.
