Back in February, the Pew Research Center released a report about how National Writing Project and Advanced Placement teachers are using technology in the classroom. In our coverage of the report, we focused on the pieces that laid out the disparities in educational technology effectiveness in low-income schools versus those which are more advantaged. We also pointed out some of the catch-22s experienced by educators who want to move their classrooms into the 21st century, but lack the funding or training needed to do so in a meaningful way.
Like all Pew reports, this one was chock full of great research–way more than we could dissect in just one blog post–so we were thrilled to get this infographic created by QuinStreet for Teacher Portal. It’s based mostly from the February 2013 report, but draws on some other data as well, and makes it easy to digest the information in a visual way. (And frankly, on Fridays, we’re all about making things easy.) Check it out:
