Professionals in teaching jobs want more sophisticated technology in their classrooms to help assist with learning, a new study shows.

According to a survey conducted by PBS LearningMedia, although 91 per cent of teachers say that they have access to computers in their classrooms, just one in five (22 per cent) teaching staff said they have access the right level of technology.

Some 59 per cent of teachers said they have access to an interactive whiteboard - a new piece of technology that can be used for classroom lessons, with 93 per cent of respondents saying they believe these devices enrich lessons.

Almost two-thirds of respondents said budget constraints are the biggest barriers to accessing the right level of technology in the classroom.

Rob Lippincott, senior vice-president of PBS Education, said: "Over the past decade, we've seen broadening adoption and deeper integration of digital media in classrooms for all age groups, with teachers enthusiastic about the power of new technologies to foster learning."
