CDW-G’s annual Teachers Talk Tech report has tracked and measured technology trends in education from the teacher’s perspective for the last four years. Once again, CDW-G employed Quality Education Data (QED), an industry leader in education market data, to survey more than 1,000 teachers to understand how technology is shaping education. The insight this year’s teachers provided shows technology-related professional development is changing the way they teach in dramatic ways. While obstacles like time, access and budget still remain, when teachers are given the tools and training they need, they use technology more and their students, in turn, use technology to learn.
The second annual CDW-G Federal Telework Survey reveals new momentum in Federal telework, with 41 percent of responding Federal employees indicating that they currently telework – up from 19 percent at the same time last year. Validating the jump in participation, 43 percent of surveyed Federal teleworkers indicate that they have started teleworking in the last year.
The CDW-G State & Local Government Technology Investment Curve is an assessment of technology purchases across the 24 most-active technology states in the U.S. The Curve is based upon research from the Center for Digital Government and CDW-G sales data since 2000. This is the first of several Technology Investment Curves, and is focused only on security components across three categories: Network and Security Hardware, Security Software and Anti-virus Software.
CDW-G conducted two informal, primary research studies in January and March 2005 to determine the state of teleworking in the Federal government and identify reasons for some agencies’ non-compliance. The first study was timed for release one month before agencies were required to report to Congress on their telework efforts, and the second was timed for release two months after the reporting deadline.
