Education and Human Development faculty members alongside a librarian from the Drake Library published a peer review article that shares their examination of educators’ self-reported survey responses about the technology used during face-to-face and online instruction during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Education and Human Development faculty members Dr. Natalie Due Svrcek, Dr. Kathleen Olmstead, Dr. Kathleen Colantonio-Yurko, and Drake Librarian, Logan Rath published a peer review article that shares our examination of educators’ self-reported survey responses about technology use during face-to-face and online instruction during the COVID-19 Pandemic, a shift to emergency remote teaching, and learning during this challenging educational landscape.
The COVID-19 Pandemic affected P-12 educators around the world, including an emergency move to remote instruction, the inclusion of new technology tools to teach at a distance, and in many cases technology mandates for instruction. We use the SAMR model (Puentadura, 2015), a classification schema to describe levels of technology integration in the classroom, as a way to interpret educators’ responses and consider the ways that educators reported their use of technology in their face to face and online teaching—ultimately to inform work in the fields of teaching and teacher education.
