The study, which was conducted by Penn Schoen Berland, included 1,575 interviews with students, teachers and parents in the U.S., Germany and China and attempted to uncover their attitudes toward the role of technology in education.

Overwhelmingly, participants said that technology helps students learn (90 percent) and agreed that it plays a key role in preparing them for jobs of the future (88 percent).

But while respondents from all of the countries agreed that schools aren’t getting what they need, the survey found that Chinese students say they spend more time with technology in school than students in the U.S. and Germany. One function of that could be that 37 percent of Chinese parents said they provide funding for technology students use in schools, as opposed to 16 percent of American parents and 23 percent of German parents.
