According to a survey of educators who attended the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) annual conference, individualized learning is the biggest challenge faced by educators today. Edmentum, a leading provider of online learning solutions, has released the results of an informal survey it conducted about challenges in education that included more than 500 respondents attending ISTE.
The survey asked event attendees to identify their top challenge from a list of seven challenges prevalent in education today. Individualized learning was by far the most common response, with nearly 38 percent of respondents reporting that as their biggest challenge, followed by intervention at 19 percent. The full results are below:
|Biggest Challenge for Educators||Responses|
|College and career readiness||8%|
*from a total of 587 respondents
While official ISTE 2014 attendee demographics are not yet available, in 2013 the two most prevalent groups of ISTE attendees were preK-12 teacher/faculty (29 percent) and technology coordinators/facilitators (18 percent). With the many challenges educators face, it’s important to prioritize challenges in order to best utilize scarce resources such as money, infrastructure, and time. This most recent survey demonstrates a strong recognition among educators of the importance of meeting the challenge of individualized learning in order to best meet the needs of every student. “At Edmentum, we leverage technology to empower educators to more effectively meet the challenges that they face every day,” said Vin Riera, president and chief executive officer of Edmentum. “We design our curriculum and assessment solutions to deliver an individualized experience for every learner, which results in better student achievement – a common goal that we share with educators.”
