Other technologies are on the rise in the classroom, too, including smartphones, student response systems and blogs.

CDW-G surveyed more than 1,000 high school and college students, teachers and IT professionals to understand how different learning models, such as hands-on and group projects, independent study, virtual learning and one-on-one tutoring, are impacting high school and college classrooms. CDW-G also sought to further understand the role that technology plays in helping students and teachers maximize their time in the classroom.
