We want to hear from K-12 teachers throughout the country. Send us an email at openreporting@nytimes.com to register for this Q&A. You may also tweet at us with the hashtag #openreporting. (Please note that this is not a survey.)

Here are some questions and answers about how people use technology in their classrooms:

One in four K-12 teachers use online tools, according to research by the National Center for Education Statistics, while about 6 percent of K-12 teachers use online portals for their students. This June, a research survey by Adobe found that 8.5 percent of students were at least somewhat likely to use online access to assist with classwork at least occasionally.

The survey found a wide gulf in the prevalence of online tools by school: For example, 56 percent of K-12 students at the pre-K through 12th-grade level in Boston used educational technology to assist with classwork in the 2015-16 school year, the most recent year covered by the survey. The same rate, however, was found in state institutions in Alabama, Mississippi and Missouri.

In Maryland, 77 percent of K-12 teachers have access to online tools, such as Google Drive and Hangouts, for class projects, the G-20 states and U.S. territories, and the Federal Family Education Loan Program report found that 15 percent of teachers use them for classroom discussions.
