Mobile Not Just for BYOT
According to a new survey conducted by
MDR’s EdNET Insight service on behalf of
Mimio, school administrators, technology
directors, and coordinators responded that
mobile learning goes beyond 1:1 and BYOD
programs. Survey highlights include:
✱ 75 percent of respondents indicated
that their districts were purchasing
mobile devices for use by select grade
levels or in specific content areas,
rather than the more universal
approaches of 1:1 implementation and
✱ More than two thirds of respondents
(74 percent for all mobile devices and
69 percent for tablets) use the devices
primarily as a general purpose device
for both instruction and assessment.
✱ 78 percent of respondents anticipate that mobile devices will be useful tools for
the Common Core Assessments in the 2014-15 school year.
✱ When asked about the types of mobile devices their districts were considering for
future purchase and implementation, the majority of respondents (82 percent)
selected the iPad. Chromebooks received the second highest response, with 35
percent of respondents choosing that option.
