But what impact have these technologies – old and new, had on teaching innovation in the classroom? The 20th Anniversary Edition of the LoTi Digital Age Survey will attempt to determine the degree of correlation between classroom digital infrastructure and the Level of Teaching Innovation (LoTi) using the variables below representing classroom digital infrastructure:
- No access to digital resources
- Teacher workstation only
- Classroom laptop/mobile device station(s)
- Access to laptop/mobile device cart(s)
- One-to-one laptop/mobile devices
- BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
By conducting comparative analyses with variables such as classroom digital infrastructure, district and campus leaders will be able to make more focused decisions as to the real needs of their constituents toward maximizing the impact of technology infrastructure on the continuous improvement process in the classroom.
This blog post is the second in a series of fourteen online entries highlighting factors that impact the effective use of technology in today's classrooms. This series focuses on each of the research variables used to conduct comparative analyses as part of the 20th Anniversary Edition of the LoTi Digital Age Survey.
