Global learning company Houghton Mifflin Harcourt™ (HMH®) is proud to announce the launch of the HMH Educator Confidence Report, a new annual report that surveys over 1,000 teachers and school and district administrators across the United States on a range of issues. Learn more about the results in our 2015 Report Infographic.
The inaugural survey found educators excited about digital adoption and concerned about student data privacy. Top findings include:
Almost all educators surveyed (97%) use some form of digital content, with over 50% using apps/websites/digital games in classrooms;
58% of educators are either “very” or “somewhat” concerned about student data privacy;
Teachers and administrators have differing perceptions on key issues, including online assessment and adaptive learning activities in classrooms;
Only 41% of teachers feel positive about the teaching profession, while 23% of teachers with less than 10 years of experience plan to leave the field in the next five years.
“There is no denying that the education sector is undergoing an exciting—and challenging—transformation. Understanding the views of the teachers who are navigating this transformation is crucial. There is no one size fits all, which is why it is so important educator voices are heard and their real needs understood.”
