K-12 Classroom Technology Survey Report 2016

K-12 schools are adding more educational technology to their classrooms from front-of-room options, like projectors and interactive whiteboards, to devices like laptops and tablets in the hands of students.

Noticing K-12 education's trend toward education technology in the classroom, Simba Information initiated research on the availability of educational technology and how teachers and students are using these innovative instructional resources. Simba Information partnered with MCH Strategic Data on a technology survey for teachers to better understand what education technology is available to teachers and students within K-12 education, and how that technology is changing instruction in the classroom.

K-12 Classroom Technology Survey Report 2016 is the resulting new report that follows the point-in-time in-depth analysis of previous Simba survey reports.

Topics Covered Include:

  • What sources are tapped to pay for classroom technology
  • How teachers are trained to use classroom technology
  • What presentation technology is available to teachers
  • What devices are available for student use
  • What purposes students use those devices for
  • What technology teachers would like to add to their classrooms
Simba Information's K-12 Classroom Technology Survey Report 2016 provides additional information about how the introduction of educational technology into the K-12 classroom setting is changing teaching and learning. K-12 educators were asked about whether they now use a learning management system and which system they use. Teachers also were asked about their participation in online education communities.

Accompanying the integration of more education technology into the K-12 classroom has been a shift to digital instructional materials. K-12 Classroom Technology Survey Report 2016 provides information on how widespread the use of digital education resources in the K-12 classroom is, whether these digital resources are replacing printed educational resources or being used in conjunction with them, where the digital resources come from, and what teachers view as the most important aspects of the new education resources when they are choosing them.

Classroom Technology Survey Report 2016 also provides a 426-page Appendix - featuring 364 tables - that provides responses to each survey question, broken down by the demographics screened for in the survey.

Demographic Breakdowns Include Information On:

  • The responding educator—school level teaching at (elementary, middle, high), years teaching experience
  • The district the responding educator comes from—size, urban/suburban/rural, and levels of poverty as indicated by percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch
Responses also are broken out for the three states with the largest populations of K-12 students: California, Florida and Texas.

The Data Appendix Provides Detailed Responses On Issues Such As:

  • Technology available in classrooms for teacher and student use—from shared technology in the front of the classroom, like interactive whiteboards and projectors, to devices in the hands of the students, like iPads and Chromebooks.
  • Purposes the technology is used for
  • Time spent using technology
  • What technology is seen as having the biggest impact on student achievement
  • Use of digital resources, factors influencing the selection of digital resources, whether digital resources are replacing print
  • Use of a learning management system
  • Participation in educator communities
K-12 Classroom Technology Survey Report and Data Appendix, 2016 is valuable to providers of educational hardware and providers of instructional materials. Investment and M&A professionals looking to understand where areas of potential growth in the digital education resources industry are, and where opportunities exist for new solutions will also find information they need.

For those who are interested in the analysis and top-line data, we offer an option that allows you to buy the report without the appendix.
