Technology Roll Call Survey Results Are In!

By Megan Power
Grades PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5, 6–8, 9–12

    The results are in with 80 responses!

    Thank you for taking a few minutes to complete my Technology Roll Call Survey and give me a little insight into my readers’ access to technology and their professional development needs. I have enjoyed seeing all the technology teachers have, along with the interest in getting more technology and using it more effectively. Always remember that having the technology tools is great, but it is the teacher and the purpose behind the tools that make them effective instructional pieces. Click Read More to see some of the results from the survey and get a glimpse into some upcoming blog topics. BONUS: A GREAT FREE graphing Web site is displayed and shared in this post!

     

    80 teachers from across the country as well as from Australia, Canada, and Bangladesh participated in our survey. It was so nice to hear from teachers from different areas and schools around the world. I hope you come back and contribute to my blog weekly so we can learn from you as well.

     

    Graph A shows the grade levels of the teachers that responded to the survey. You can see that although K–2 had a nice representation, the 3rd–5th grade teachers are a big majority. This information helps me to know my audience and can make sure to include ideas, activities, and resources for the appropraite levels.

    Graph B shows what technology our readers currently have access to in their classrooms. I was excited to see many teachers with LCD Projectors, document cameras, and interactive whiteboards. I am, though, very jealous of the three teachers with SMART Tables. I'd love to hear how you are using it in the classroom and how you were able to purchase one. Another exciting result was the ten people who responded saying they have a 1:1 learning environment where each student has a laptop. Since I teach a 1:1 kindergarten, I would love to hear more about your experiences and successes. It really is an amazing model of teaching and learning.
