This is a great study. The big finding was that despite having technology for 30+ years we are for the most part still teaching in traditional ways, and to the extent that technology is being used at all it's kind of kept around the fringes.

In view of that, what was to me the most interesting finding was how as high school teachers work to teach in traditional ways their biggest technology issue is to battle their students' constant use of smartphones. What irony!

Let me make clear I'm NOT seeking to criticize our wonderful teachers, just to make the point that much of the challenge to how to use technology to bring about school improvement still lies in front of us.
