Abstract: Integration of technology in education is not a new concept. Teacher training in using instructional technology outside of the classroom is where the divide remains. In 2020, the Pennsylvania Department of Education mandated each school district in the state create a continuity of learning plan and planned instruction to include both formal teaching and learning as schools closed due to COVID-19. This study examines the level of training experienced by K-12 educators during this time to determine if the expectations of moving online as educators were met with proper training. A quantitative study explores the perceptions of rural Pennsylvania K-12 public school teachers to determine their access to internet, hardware / software and proper training.
