1 THE 2011 CDW-G 21ST-CENTURY CLASSROOM REPORT June 27, CDW Government

2 INTRODUCTION A 21st-century classroom leverages technology to engage and empower teachers and students. In 2010, CDW-G launched the first 21st-Century Classroom Report to understand: The role of technology in high school education How schools are meeting students tech needs Opportunities to improve classroom technology In 2011, the research continues to offer educational leaders the opportunity to hear directly from their students, faculty and IT professionals on how to create and sustain an educational experience that prepares students to succeed in today s classroom and on tomorrow s college campus. In May 2011, CDW-G surveyed 1,000 high school students, high school faculty and district IT professionals around the country to understand how teachers and students want to use technology, measure how classroom technology is evolving and identify opportunities for further improvement. 2

3 THE 21ST-CENTURY CLASSROOM BY THE NUMBERS 41% Students who say they are encouraged to use technology throughout the school day 38% Students who say they use technology in nearly every class 75% Faculty who say they regularly use technology to teach 45% Faculty whose classroom technology meets their expectations 70% IT professionals who say they understand how students want to use technology as a learning tool 78% IT professionals who say districts prepare students to use technology successfully after high school 3

12 DIGITAL CONTENT ENTERS THE EQUATION While 73% of faculty say digital content is essential for the 21st-century classroom, most schools do not offer digital content As an alternative to traditional print textbooks, IT professionals report that their district s high schools are: Using digital content 11% Considering digital content 15% Top digital content benefits:* Average Response #1 Access to current information 36% #2 Ability to access multiple sources of content from one device 34% #3 Instant access to content 31% Considering a combined environment 47% Top digital content challenges:* Average Response Not considering digital content 17% Don t know 10% #1 Affordability 65% #2 Some faculty prefer print materials 53% #3 Faculty reluctance 44% *Respondents asked to select all that apply; rankings based on averages from students, faculty and IT professionals 12

Yes No Unsure 14% 21% 65% More schools are investing in improvements. This percentage grew from 51% in 2010 to 65% in

16 COMMUNICATE AND COLLABORATE High school students and faculty use tech for peer communication and research, but not collaboration Communication gap: Asked about their daily tech use: 59% of students said they use tech to communicate with other students 68% of faculty use it to communicate with other teachers Just 14% of students use it to communicate with their teachers Collaboration gap: Asked about tech use for learning purposes: 59% of students said they use tech to communicate with other students Just 23% said they use it to collaborate with other students Students and faculty are both online, but few are connecting with each other. Noted one educator, [Technology] makes the instruction more interactive, more engaging. It meets students on a common ground where they can use their unique abilities as digital natives. When asked what they would like to be able to do with technology, one faculty member replied, Be able to have students collaborate on assignments, written critiques, etc. 16

17 SEEK STUDENT INPUT The majority of faculty and IT professionals believe they understand student needs; they may be overconfident 74% & 70% And, just 30% of students say their high school seeks student input on classroom technology of faculty of IT professionals think they understand how students want to use technology as a learning tool but just 49% of students agree I don t want to type things just to say I used technology at school. If I am using technology, I want to be doing something I couldn t do without it. High school student 17

18 CALLS TO ACTION Consider the students Think outside the box Young students are more in touch with technology these days, and might know a few more tricks than their teachers. Students learn from teachers and vice versa. High school student For my language class, I would like to be able to use music and movie clips regularly, perhaps in class and on individual ipods that students could take home. High school faculty Invest in engagement Understand the impact We are experimenting with reversed instruction where kids watch lectures as homework and do assignments with the instructor during the school day. District IT professional Give me time to plan lessons using technology. The resources are great, but putting together lessons via Moodle or a similar program requires a lot more time than writing and copying a worksheet. High school faculty 18
