Wiring administrators – Time a barrier

Teachers in the U.S. are connected to the Web and are comfortable using it but feel no pressure and have little time to use technology in the classroom, a new survey says.

The survey by NetDay, a California group founded in 1996 to wire U.S. schools, has prompted the group to take on the job of teaching school administrators about the importance of building the Internet into classroom work, The New York Times reported April 4.

“The real challenge is how to help teachers use the Internet,” Julie Evans, NetDay’s CEO, told the Times.

Teachers “were not receiving leadership or advice on different ways to use the Internet,” she said. “There really needs to be a new dialogue with the leadership…so they can be more understanding of what the time issue means.”
