The New 3 E's of Education: Enabled, Engaged, Empowered--How Today's Educators Are Advancing a New Vision for Teaching and Learning. Speak Up 2010 National Findings: K-12 Teachers, Librarians & Administrators
Project Tomorrow
This report is the second in a two-part series to document the key national findings from Speak Up 2010. In the first report, "The New 3E's of Education: Enabled, Engaged, Empowered--How Today's Students are Leveraging Emerging Technologies for Learning," the researchers explored the views of students and parents. In this companion report, "The New 3E's of Education: Enabled, Engaged, Empowered--How Today's Educators are Advancing a New Vision for Teaching and Learning," the researchers explore how teachers, principals, district administrators, librarians and technology coordinators are addressing the student vision for learning around three key trends. These trends have generated significant interest in the past year at conferences, in policy discussions and within schools and districts: mobile learning, online and blended learning and digital content. While each of these trends includes the essential components of the student vision of socially-based, un-tethered and digitally-rich learning, they also provide a unique backdrop for investigating the role of educators to engage, enable and empower students through the use of these emerging technologies. This report shares the authentic, unfiltered perspectives of educators on these key trends, looking both at the perceived value of the emerging technologies as well as the barriers or challenges educators face in implementing such tools. Additionally, this report examines a new emerging vision that teachers and administrators have for leveraging technology within learning that honors the legacy of those early NetDay volunteers but also most notably, is more reflective than ever before of the students' own vision for 21st century learning.
