The Importance of Being Tech
Based on a recent survey of parents of school-age children, schools are not doing enough to teach them tech. The Project Tomorrow survey asked 335,000 students, parents and teachers and showed that two out of three parents don’t think today’s schools are preparing students for tomorrow’s technologies, while half of the principals asked said they were doing a good job. The parents surveyed thought that the schools need more access to state of the art equipment, like interactive boards, notebooks and projectors, and teachers need more tech training.
