Almost 93% of teachers agree (either somewhat or strongly) that digital resources and web-based programs help students' academic achievement.

This comes from a joint project conducted by Good Magazine and Kiss Me I'm Polish, in conjunction with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The information comes from "Primary Sources: America's Teachers on America's Schools," a comprehensive study undertaken by Scholastic and the Gates Foundation.
