Educators have been taking a hit in the press lately about their level of comfort with technology. But a recent survey of eSchool News readers--the leaders most likely to purchase or manage technology in their schools--suggests they are very familiar with its use.
Led by Prof. Jane McDonald of the Department of Educational Leadership at George Washington University's Graduate School of Education and Human Development, the study revealed that 83 percent of readers felt "very comfortable" with a computer, and 77 percent felt "very comfortable" with the internet. Less than one percent felt "uncomfortable" with either technology.
