Common online collaborative tools are only used infrequently or never by a large proportion of surveyed teachers. Even the most common used tools - mobile devices - are used never or less than once a month by almost 60% of teachers. These results of the Online4EDU research can be seen in the new Online4EDU Infographic.
The infographic visualizes infrequent and sporadic use of online collaboration tools across the population of teachers. Confidence varies between tools, but even for ubiquitous tools such as mobile devices and social media, on average more than 40% of respondents were not at all confident or only a little confident. This level of confidence indicates that there is a very substantial cohort of teachers who lack the confidence to use even common online tools in the classroom.
