LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. – April 27, 2021 – Teachers make a tremendous impact in the lives of millions of students every day, in the classroom and far beyond its walls. From navigating hybrid lesson plans to keeping classes engaged to providing emotional support to keep students motivated during this difficult time, teachers play a critical role in students’ personal well-being and educational growth. To better understand teachers’ needs, Epson surveyed Pre-K to 5th grade educators* and found that they heavily rely on technology to support critical learning, with 80% of respondents spending their own money on classroom supplies. 94% of respondents print documents to help them stay organized during the school week and help them remain productive, and 81% of respondents scan hard copy materials such as lesson plans or art project materials for their students to use.
