How has the pandemic impacted K-12 education? And what did the last year reveal about the state of teaching and learning in 2021? Leading edtech company Instructure partnered with Hanover Research to find out. Together, they surveyed educators and parents in the United States to identify:
• Metrics for student success and factors that impact student engagement
• Technology solutions that are being used to support instruction and their impact on student learning
• Technology investments districts should capitalize on as teachers and students head back to the classroom
The consensus? The State of Teaching & Learning in K-12 Education report, in its survey of 464 parents and 200 teachers/administrators, revealed six key trends that parents and educators across the country feel are important to teaching and learning in K-12 education.
As well, Instructure CEO Steve Daly discusses some of the numbers in a long-form interview published recently in EdTech Digest. Daly says of the report, “…a couple things really stuck out. To start, hybrid learning is here to stay even as students return to the classroom. 81% of educators believe that technology will become increasingly important in teaching and learning moving forward, specifically around organizing instruction, engagement and communication.”
The report is 21 very easy to read pages filled with perspective, key considerations, and key ingredients to high-quality learning.
