School Technology Survey Shows Steady Improvement
BARRE – A survey of technology available at schools by the Vermont Agency of Education reveals steady improvement including more than 85,000 computers in use compared to 68,000 last year.
The 2016 survey also revealed that, for the first time, all of the 305 schools who responded to the survey have wireless access within their buildings.
“Vermont schools should be congratulated for continuing to provide technology to support digital learning across their curriculum landscape,” said Peter Drescher, education technology coordinator at the Vermont Agency of Education. “Schools continue to make this a priority and the increasing availability of more robust broadband only will serve to enhance the educational prospects for all Vermont students.”
