Nieuws | de redactie
12 januari 2012 | Oudere docenten zetten veel vaker online middelen in bij hun lessen dan jongere. Een onderzoek van Teachtoday komt met een opmerkelijke ontmythologisering rond het gebruik van digitale leermiddelen door leraren.

“Teachers aged 46-55 years old are most frequent internet users,while teachers under 25 years old are least frequent users.” In eensurvey door  ‘the industry-led website Teachtoday’ blijkt”that younger teachers are less frequent internet users becausethey mostly work with pre-school and primary school groups and donot feel the need to use new digital technologies for theirwork.”

“Less computer equipment is often available and less emphasis isplaced on new technologies in the curriculum of the schools in manycountries. Nevertheless, 72% of respondents use the internet everyday, regardless of their location or type of connection.”

“Another highlight in the findings is that 96% of respondingteachers use a digital tool in class: 24% of teachers useinteractive white boards, 22% virtual learning platforms and 19%services such as Google Maps and Skype during the lesson, or run aclass/school blog.”

“In addition, teachers surveyed believe that children’s onlinesafety is a responsibility that they need to assume: almost 95% ofteachers consider that educating students about the safe andresponsible use of technology is part of their responsibility,while less than 5% partially disagree or do not agree at all withthis statement. However, in one in three schools online safety isnot a priority. Identity theft rated highest amongst teachers’concerns (top concern for 63%), not surprisingly followed by theirfear of pupils taking photos in class and disseminating them online(46%).”
