This post introduces a report (102 page PDF) on the use of network technologies in the classroom published by the Canadian Teachers Federation and Media Smarts. It surveyed 4,043 teachers across Canada to explore the availability of network technology in the classroom, the ways teachers are making use of it, the knowledge and skills teachers developed to use it, and novel approaches to learning the technologies enabled. Teachers responded that the vast majority have used these technologies in the classroom, that it is essential to teach digital literacy skills, and that students prefer to use their own personal network device. Interestingly, only one in ten teachers use social networking to support learning in the classroom, and only a fifth use it to communicate with students outside the classroom.
