It’s fair to say that 2020 has been challenging for education. While most students are learning from home and teachers are remotely supporting them, classroom technology may not be at the forefront of educators’ minds…
That being said, at Promethean, we believe that it’s incredibly important to continue to plot trends and track sentiments, possibly now more than ever before. That’s why we’re encouraging educators to participate in our fifth annual State of Technology in Education Report, to provide valuable insights into the things that matter most in education.
The State of Technology in Education Report has been tracking trends and opinions on the key educational topics since 2016. The report encourages participants to share insightful opinions on personal experiences, allowing for dialogues to be opened on the key issues that impact schools every day.
What have we learnt so far?
In five years, we have seen the Promethean State of Technology Report go from strength to strength and it has been an opportunity to get a rounded view of the educational landscape, helping to shape future developments within the sector.
● It has identified positive change, such as 38% of teachers believing that schools are doing more to address the workload crisis in comparison to just 20% the year before.
● A shift in what is deemed important within education – such as 89% of educators believing that technology is integral to everyday life so should be present in education; a significant rise from 52% in 2018/19.
● The burdens schools face year on year, with 54% of school leaders saying budgets will make it difficult for schools to meet strategic objectives.

The Promethean State of Technology in Education Report is an opportunity to open up dialogues with leaders and decision makers to enact change. With over 2,000 responses from educators in the UKI region in the last 12 months, the report creates reliable datasets that can encourage decisions – guiding the development of effective classroom solutions that aim to confront these challenges head on.
Now more than ever, it’s imperative that we understand what works and what doesn’t for schools, and how technology can support and enhance teaching and learning outcomes.
This year, we are opening up the State of Technology in Education Report to a wider range of educators than ever before, ensuring that everyone’s voice is heard. If you’d like to get involved, the survey is open now. To share your views, please click here.
