According to teachers in England, perhaps not. Researcher Kristen Weatherby teases out the ICT angle
It's official – teachers in England and Scotland work very hard (see BBC's "Teachers work 'longer classroom hours'"). Which makes it an ideal time to revisit the OECD’s Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS 2013) that asked teachers worldwide about their experiences with continuing professional development (CPD) and where they might require further support.
If we compare the areas in which teachers in England and Japan expressed high levels of need for CPD, a puzzle emerges.
