AdMob Tablet Research: Gaming, Search & Email Top Uses For iPad, Not Entertainment | Mobile Marketing Watch

AdMob Tablet Research: Gaming, Search & Email Top Uses For iPad, Not Entertainment | Mobile Marketing Watch | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it
New research out from AdMob looks at tablet device usage, primarily the iPad, in terms of content consumption, where they use them the most and other factors.
The survey included responses from over 1,500 respondents and showed that gaming (84 percent), search (78 percent) and email (74 percent) led the way in terms of how users are spending their time with their tablets, while surprisingly, entertainment consumption (music and video) and reading e-books ranked among the least common activities with only 51 percent and 46 percent respectively.
Interestingly, the survey shows that nearly half (43 percent) of those surveyed now spend more time with their tablet than they do with their desktop or notebook computer, and 77 percent spend less time on their notebooks or desktops than they did before getting a tablet. Even more impressive is that over a third (34 percent) of respondents indicated that they use their tablets more than they use their televisions.
In terms of where people use their tablets most, it seems “at home” was the most common response. In fact, 82 percent of respondents claim they primarily use their tablets at home, while only 11 percent said they use them most often “on the go.” The remaining 7 percent said they use the iPad mostly at work.

How One “Hour of Code” Can Launch an Entire Computer Science Program

How One “Hour of Code” Can Launch an Entire Computer Science Program | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it
"Thanks to code.org‘s “Hour of Code,” millions of students will get their first taste of computer programming this week, Dec. 9-13, designated as Computer Science Education Week. If schools do decide to go beyond the one hour and take the next step to add coding as a part of school curriculum, what will this look like? Getting kids excited about coding is the easy part. What about the stuff that administrators and educators must worry about — funding, teacher development, curriculum, connection to standards? And, where do you fit this “coding class” in a school day?"

"Some teachers are a little torn over the use of animation in the classroom – lots love it but sometimes people feel it can be a time-consuming waste of precious classroom hours, with students spending a long time perfecting something that they don’t believe has huge educational value. In fact, there are fantastic concrete reasons to take advantage of the massive range of animation tools out there specifically for use in a teaching environment. Here are just some of them!"
