Survey Shows Support For EdTech

Laptops. Smartboards. 3D printing labs. If you do not incorporate technology into your learning environment, you are way behind the times. The “2019 Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology” by Inside Higher Ed and Gallup found that 80% of faculty “fully” or “somewhat” support the increased use of educational technologies.

Here is why:

  • 64% — Students simply cannot attend a face-to-face class due to work or family
  • 57% — I believe my students learn better when I engage them with effective technology tools
  • 54% — I like experimenting with new instructional methods and tools
  • 54% — I have had success with education technology in the past
  • 41% — I like the flexibility teaching online offers me as an instructor
  • 29% — My institution provides adequate training on how to use new technologies
  • 9% — My institution rewards people who adopt new technologies
