In Australia a report was commissioned, using McGregor Tan Research, to provide informed data to enable the development of new products and services relevant to educators and its key markets.
This findings from this report would, I suspect, be similar to one done in New Zealand.
Key findings include:
- 85% of participants use the internet daily but
- 41% said that they experienced barriers or blocks to effective use of the internet
- a lack of investment in providing teachers with the techniques and strategies to use computers in their classrooms.
