UK teachers want more computers in schools

As well as equipment, a priority is to increase the provision of training for teachers in the use of technology, according to a new study.

A top priority for UK teachers is to increase the number of computers available to students, as well as provision of their own training on the use of technology, according to a new study.

The research, conducted by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) involved 2,000 teachers in a range of school types nationwide.  It found that, despite the intensive use of computers by children to study, provision of equipment at schools is not ideal.  Based on the results, the CEBR report recommended that provision of training for teachers should be expanded to maximise the effectiveness of new technologies.
