Abstract

The integration of technology and digital media -- including interactive whiteboards, tablets, computer-based simulations, and digital textbooks -- has become increasingly popular in PreK-12 classrooms across the country. Although technology and digital media are prevalent inside (and outside of) many classrooms today, teachers are more willing to utilize innovative tools and practices when they have had training and continued professional development on their use. This study investigates PreK-12 teachers' skill and practice in technology and digital media integration in their classrooms. Using self-reported quantitative survey data from 13,767 teachers nationwide, the authors provide insight into teachers' perceived abilities to integrate technology and digital media as well as baseline data to inform the implementation of targeted professional development activities for teacher candidates, in-service teachers, administrators, and school-based support staff.
