Gains and Gaps in Education Technology: An NEA Survey of Educational Technologies in U.S. Schools. NEA Research Working Paper
Tuck, Kathy
National Education Association Research Department
This study sought to compile a set of national data on educational technology in the classroom from the perspectives of teachers and education support professionals. It aims to provide the National Education Association's (NEA's) state and local affiliates with national data against which they can gauge their own progress in using computer-based and multimedia technologies. Also, the report can be of long-term use as a benchmark for progress in educational technology, particularly across jurisdictions, and for monitoring the disparities between demographic groups of public school staff in their access to and application of technology. This study sought to determine the extent that particular technology issues differed in their implementation and impact for the demographic groups. This report focuses on the most salient of these differences but also highlights areas of concern that may warrant further exploration. A discussion of these differences is offered in the Conclusions and Recommendations chapter of the report. The following are appended: (1) Limitations of the Study; (2) Survey Instrument; and (3) Standardized Regression Coefficients. (Contains 12 tables and 17 figures.)
