– In 2014, K-12 school districts’ purchases of tablets and other handheld mobile devices will be double their purchases of laptops and notebooks.
– More than a third of teachers say they have used a tablet or e-reader in their classroom, a 20 percent increase from 2012.
– 56 percent of schools and libraries expect to implement or expand digital textbook use.
– 74 percent of teachers say technology motivates students to learn.
