A tale of three tech rollouts: Challenge and success in North Carolina
When it comes to what constitutes the building blocks of successful ed tech rollouts, no one knows better than district leaders, principals, and teachers.
One recent study of 4,300 educators by TES Global and the Jefferson Education Accelerator confirmed that teachers want to be empowered and have a sense of ownership over the tech utilized in their classrooms. Some 63% of respondents said that they wanted to be the primary decision makers about tech in the classroom, while 38% said they aren't currently a part of the tech decision-making process. Additionally, 45% said tech trainings hadn’t made them more any more comfortable with new devices or platforms.
