Despite overall low levels of teacher optimism, educators across the country agree that edtech helps their instructional strategies and has much more potential in the classroom.
The fifth annual Educator Confidence Report, from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and YouGov, explores teacher sentiment across a broad range of topics and includes responses from more than 1,300 teachers and administrators.
Surveyed teachers are optimistic about the use of edtech. Seventy-two percent of teachers report using edtech every day, and nearly all teachers (95 percent) have experienced benefits from using edtech.
Most teachers (82 percent) agree that technology has empowered them to strengthen their teaching practice in ways they would otherwise not be able to do, including helping to close equity gaps through more personalized instruction.
