The Use of Technology in Chicago Public Schools 2011: Perspectives from Students, Teachers, and Principals. Research Brief
Ehrlich, Stacy B.; Sporte, Susan E.; Sebring, Penny Bender
Consortium on Chicago School Research
Technology use is ubiquitous in America's colleges and most workplaces, and it is fast becoming accepted as fact that all students--elementary and high school--must be exposed to technology. Whether schools are doing this is an open question. A 2002 report by the University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research (CCSR) revealed large differences in how well schools in Chicago were structured to support student and teacher use of technology. Since then, technology use has become an integral part of people's work and private lives. This report attempts to update previous CCSR research on technology use in Chicago Public Schools (CPS) by focusing on the most basic skills and experiences students need in order to become technologically literate--e.g., the extent to which students are using technology for school and whether factors such as school culture and expectations of technology use by their teachers and principals contribute to this. Appended are: (1) Survey Items; (2) Methods; and (3) Tables from HLM and Regression Analyses. (Contains 16 figures, 14 tables, and 43 endnotes.)
