Are your students’ tech skills outpacing your teachers’ skills? If so, you’re not alone. What’s more, although your students may be always connected to the online world, they could lack the finesse to safely and effectively navigate and communicate in the digital realm. Grovo explores a twin digital skills gap that exists at many K-12 schools across the country, and explains six important trends that savvy educators must know about.
Ohio’s Indian Lakes Local School District needed a way to educate teachers on today’s digital tools, including Google Apps, Chromebooks, and iPads—as well as bridge the growing technology gap between students and teachers. After the district partnered with Grovo to develop training, 81% of teachers reported deeper knowledge of fundamental concepts, 78% said they’d be able to put new concepts to immediate use, and 54% completed more training than assigned.
