Consumerscope: Teens Take on Technology at School
Though teens show high aptitude for technology, the use of technology in the school is still limited. While nearly two-thirds of teens reported that technology is used regularly in their classes, only four in ten reported spending time in a computer class or lab.
While overall findings suggested low usage of technology in classrooms, teens enrolled in private schools reported higher levels of encouragement and usage of technology in their education compared to teens in public schools.
Back in 2001, CEA conducted the Technology and Education report to obtain adults' views on technology and education. Video games, laptops and digital cameras weren't even mentioned. How times have changed.
