Data on Teachers (AMIRA) Educators: By the Numbers: PBS study on schools (5 min) More than three-quarters (76 percent) of K–12 teachers report that they use digital media in their classrooms, as shown in figure 1. This is up significantly from 69 percent in 2008. Eight in 10 of these teachers are frequent or regular users, with elementary teachers reporting the most frequent use.

Game Changer, Joan Ganz Cooney Center “ Digital games offer a promising and untapped opportunity to leverage children’s enthusiasm and to help transform learning in America.” “ On an average day, children as young as eight spend as many hours engaged in media activity as they spend in school; three-quarters of American children play computer and video games.” “ Despite their reputation as promoters of violence and mayhem, digital games have in fact been shown to help children gain content and vital foundational and 21st-century skills.”
