On Monday, the National Center for the Arts (NCA) released its latest report, The New School Movie: What’s in the Movies, a comprehensive look at how the entertainment industry is using new and old technology to reinvent the classroom and deliver more high-quality learning.NCA President Robert B. Smith told reporters that this year’s report highlights the need to focus on teaching the next generation of Americans, and how technology is helping our schools achieve the same goals as their parents and grandparents did.
“Technology is helping us learn more, teach better, and help teachers get the most out of their teachers,” Smith said.
“Teachers need to make the most of this new technology.”
The NCA’s study focuses on movies, video games, and other video-related content, which the report says are used in classrooms across the country.
According to the report, the use of technology in classrooms is rising.
The NTA report, titled “Teacher-driven innovations: The future of classroom technology,” found that, between 2014 and 2016, the share of teachers’ time spent in classrooms with video-based instruction grew from 35 percent to 47 percent.
The report also noted that the share in teachers’ classrooms with digital tools grew from 11 percent to 19 percent.
While this trend is certainly a welcome development, the report also found that the use and development of technology is often in competition with teachers’ classroom work, with the NCA finding that about one in three of all teachers are using technology for classroom instruction, and one in five teachers are working in a video-only environment.
While technology is not the only technology being used in schools, Smith pointed out that it is the one thing that can give students the best learning experience.
“Technology can enhance teaching and student learning by enabling students to engage in creative thinking and problem solving,” he said.NACA Director of Education John B. O’Donnell said that in addition to the educational benefits of using technology, technology is also the best tool to promote learning.
“In the next few years, the world of learning will transform, and the future of learning lies in the classroom,” O’Neill said.
According to the NTA, digital technologies have become the norm in schools across the U.S. and have helped to dramatically increase student achievement and retention.
However, the NACA report notes that students are also using technology to explore and share content on social media and other social media outlets.
“It’s great to see the teachers using digital technology to help them engage students on topics that matter most to them,” Smith noted.
“This is what I call the digital revolution.
This is the era of digital learning.
This time, we need teachers to be the ones to take charge.”
The report also said that technology is a key driver of the growth of online learning, with more than 1.4 million online education providers currently offering students access to more than 30 million instructional videos and 1.7 million interactive content tools.
“The advent of the Internet is creating a massive opportunity for educators to help students explore their knowledge and create meaningful connections to their teachers through interactive content and educational video content,” Smith explained.
“With these platforms, students can learn from the most talented teachers and connect with others in the world who are doing the same.”
Teachers are not the sole beneficiaries of the rise of technology.
The NCA also noted the importance of technology to the health of the education system, which is a primary concern of the agency.
“Education is an incredibly complex field, and educators need to be able to deliver high quality learning to all of their students,” Smith added.
“But the importance goes beyond the classroom.”
The National Center on Teacher Quality, the principal investigator of the NCE study, noted that, although technology is used by a great many teachers in classrooms, it is not enough.
“As we continue to innovate, we must ensure that we continue our focus on quality and accountability,” she said.
