Key Outcomes The educators who participated in this survey have strong constructivist, student-centric pedagogical philosophies; the challenge is to put these beliefs into practice in their classrooms • educators report using innovative teaching practices such as personalized learning and collaboration exercises frequently, • they also report being limited in how much they can integrate ICT in teaching and learning because of limited access to ICT.
Key Outcomes Teachers and school leaders differ in what they see as the top barrier to using ICT in teaching and learning. • Teachers said the top barriers to ICT usage in teaching and learning were “Not enough computers for student use” • “Difficulty in accessing computers in labs or the library.” Both of these barriers are related to student access to technology.
Key Outcomes Teachers and school leaders differ in what they see as the top barrier to using ICT in teaching and learning. • School leaders’ perceptions were quite different, and focused on teachers. • They said the top barriers was “Insufficient time for teachers to prepare lessons that use ICT”. • They also report insufficient funding as a top barrier.
