TES Connect – Pupils think they know more than ICT teachers

Almost six out of 10 pupils believe they know more about technology than their ICT teachers, a survey has revealed.

According to figures released by Microsoft, 58 per cent of 16 to 18-year- olds currently in education believe they have a better understanding of IT than those charged with teaching them.

The views of 1,000 students were garnered for the survey, which also showed that 71 per cent of pupils feel they learn more about IT at home rather than in the classroom.
