State of Technology in Education 2021 survey opens to UK and US educators

Promethean’s sixth annual edtech analysis invites teachers and school leaders to share their experiences of learning and adapting amidst the pandemic

Promethean’s sixth annual State of Technology in Education survey is now open for participation, inviting school educators and administrators to share their teaching insights and experiences from the last 12 months.

With the pandemic thrusting the world into turmoil since March 2020, education institutions all over the world have been reliant on technology to minimise disruption for students and enable learning to continue. Teachers were forced to adapt at rapid pace, as schools had no choice but to adopt either a fully remote or hybrid (part online, part in-person) education experience. Many are now wondering whether this accelerated digital transformation is here to stay long-term, and if so, how will this shape the future of the sector?

To find out this and more, Promethean is seeking survey responses from those who have experienced it first-hand.

Last year’s State of Technology in Education reports revealed edtech’s most pressing challenges and successes, including:

  • Teacher wellbeing remaining a top issue, with the rapid switch to remote or hybrid models exacerbating pressures upon teachers.
  • Increased investment in edtech training and continuing professional development (CPD) was widely viewed as a win for the sector.
  • Most teachers and administrators said technology would generally be combined with traditional resources and teaching methods.
  • Participants claimed they were “constantly striving to innovate by using technology as a tool for education”.
  • Remote learning would see the biggest growth in education over the next three years.

Following one long year of pandemic teaching, Promethean hopes this year’s survey and subsequent report will unveil what lies ahead in this brand new education chapter.
