The second annual CDW-G 21st-Century Classroom Report finds faculty and IT professionals more widely accept new technologies in the classroom. However, just as with last year’s survey, students still say schools are not meeting their technology expectations. Key findings of the CDW-G 21st-Century Classroom Report include:

¦ Districts are looking beyond current budget challenges. Despite the expectation that 47 percent of district IT budgets will decrease from current levels during the next school year, 65 percent of districts plan investments in classroom technology over the next two years.

¦ Students say smartphones (30 percent) and MP3 players (36 percent) are essential tools in a 21st-century classroom.

¦ Asked about technology as a communication tool, 59 percent of students say they communicate with other students every day, but only 23 percent use it to collaborate on assignments and projects with other students.
