View Technology Counts 2016, the annual report on education technology, online now.
Technology Counts 2016 explores the complexity of creating meaningful technological change in American classrooms, drawing on the results of an exclusive survey of K-12 educators on their use of technology. The survey found that teachers are eager to adopt new technologies but often face systemic obstacles in using digital tools to transform their instruction. The stories featured in Technology Counts 2016 delve into this dynamic, examining both the challenges of effectively implementing classroom technology and creative personal initiatives and partnerships aimed at surmounting them. At the heart of the report are educators’ own experiences and stories.

The report features Education Week‘s first-ever Tech Confidence Index, which captures teachers’ attitudes about the promise technology holds for K-12 schools, now and in the future.
