Teachers and technology –  six key research findings

Your teachers and your technology – what do you need to be thinking about next? Fiona Aubrey-Smith looks at the emerging findings from new research into teachers’ technology use during the pandemic

One of the unintended consequences of remote schooling during the coronavirus pandemic has been the leaps made with different uses of technologies. While much has been written about the different ways that different schools have used technologies, as a school leader you will have also seen a range of different approaches within your school.

One of the opportunities ahead now is to unpick the variance across your own team – to understand why different teachers do different things with the same technologies.

Importantly, you can then use this understanding to bring greater alignment between your school vision for technology and the realities of practice. This might be about increasing consistency within practice, or it might be about identifying and building upon the different strengths across your team.
