Parents’ Views of Digital Classrooms from Public Radio’s Marketplace

Public radio’s Marketplace reported on parents’ view on the digital classroom in the May 15th episode.

We turn our attention to parents, many of whom have spent the last year exploring the ins-and-outs of educational technology themselves, alongside their children. We wanted to get parents’ views of the shift, as their children do more school work on laptops and tablets, and become accustomed to emailing teachers and checking grades online.

In a national, online survey of parents of kids in grades 3 through 12 conducted by Lieberman Research Worldwide, “Parents’ Attitudes Toward Educational Technology,” we found parents feel good about the growing use of technology in education, and most think it is improving the quality of education for their children.
