How deeply will digital learning transform K-12 long term?
- Using data from Project Tomorrow’s Speak Up Research Project, a new report identifies three takeaways as evidence of potential significant, long-term impacts on K-12 educational models at large.
- Among the takeaways from “Digital Learning During the Pandemic: Emerging Evidence of an Education Transformation”:
- Greater digital resource usage by teachers and students expands opportunities for defining rigor and quality of resources, and greater context for defining digital learning’s value.
- Parents have a stronger appreciation of digital learning as a mode of delivery for education as well as their role in the learning process at home.
- Students’ appreciation of technology as a learning tool has also grown, with recognition of new mediums for educational delivery and better learning environments for some.
- The report is based on 2019-20 Speak Up Research Project survey data collected from 110,467 K-12 students, 11,731 teachers and librarians, 1,128 school and district level administrators, 11,749 parents and 1,532 community members, representing 8,933 public, private and charter schools and 268 school districts nationwide.
