An online audit survey of district technology directors about the take up of interactive networking in the USA adds to the Australian findings (Lonsdale et al., 2009, p. 33) that teacher confidence is a major hurdle in the use of technologies in teaching and learning. A National Survey Report titled Digital Districts: Web 2.0 and Collaborative Technologies in U.S. Schools (Interactive Educational Systems Design, 2011), reported in The Journal, surveyed 388 school district technology directors about teacher and student generated interactive content, social and collaborative networking, teacher use, district plans and policies and barriers to teacher take up. There are approximately 14,500 school districts in the USA and the survey sample of 2.6% of district technology directors included small (62%, <2500 students), midsize (28%, >2500 and <9,999 students) and large districts (10%, >10,000 students).
