EdTech: It Isn't Optional, It's Essential [Infographic]

EdTech: It Isn't Optional, It's Essential [Infographic] | Technology for school | Scoop.it

"How important do you think it is for teachers to use educational technologies in the classroom? During this school year, how often do you or your students use [insert type of educational technology] in your classroom? What are the biggest challenges to integrating educational technologies in schools?

These were some of the questions asked in a national online survey of teachers and administrators, conducted for Common Sense Media's Graphite by Harris Interactive in May 2013. And here are some of the answers from the survey."

Research-based proof that students use cell phones for LEARNING

Research-based proof that students use cell phones for LEARNING | Technology for school | Scoop.it

"A new study conducted by TRU provides a body of research which supports the idea that students use cell phones to learn, and also that schools are not acknowledging or supporting them fully, yet... Rather than banning, the study highlights the fact that if we meet children where they are we can leverage their use of mobile devices for powerful learning."

The study was a survey of 1000 students in Grades 6 - 8 and came out with some surprising data. Key findings include:

* More than one out of three middle school students report they are using smartphones (39%) and tablets (31%) to do homework.

* More than 1 in 4 students (26 %) are using smartphones for their homework, weekly or more.

* Hispanic and African American middle school students are using the smartphones for homework more than Caucasian students. Nearly one half of all Hispanic middle school students (49%) report using smartphones for homework. Smartphone use for homework also crosses income levels with nearly one in three (29%) of students from the lowest income households reporting smartphone usage to do their homework assignments. (Note - 25% of students surveyed were from households of $25,000 or less income.)

The report has additional key findings as well as areas of significan opportunity, statistics on students interest in STEM, mobile device usage, benefits of mobile devices in the classroom, and the opportunity to increase mobile device usage in the classroom.
