Stop letting the IT Department tell your teachers how to teach with technology. Work with them to develop a safe and secure environment for digital learning.
Are you prepared to guide your school as this unfolds around you?
Key Finding #1
Digital schools are transitioning from a desktop world to a mobile world Not long ago, very few schools had a large number of laptop computers. ADS 2006 indicates that 19.4% of all student devices today are mobile and that 52.1% will be mobile in 2011. It is noteworthy that schools rarely change at this rapid rate. Also, since these figures represent the installed base, current-year sales numbers will be even more tilted toward mobile solutions.
Key Finding #2
Ubiquitous computing is growing rapidly
In 2003 QED reported that 4% of U.S. school districts had started 1:1 implementations.. ADS 2006 indicates that more than 24% of school districts are in the process of transitioning to 1:1—a large jump in a market that is known to take a cautious view of change.
Key Finding #5
Online learning is growing
ADS 2006 shows that online learning for core courses is currently used by only 2.3% of students. By 2011 this figure will grow to 7.4%, or a 26.3% compound annual growth rate.
