Mobile may once have been proscribed tech on American K-12 campuses, but it now enjoys a “substantial presence in most school districts.” According to a new report published by ed tech firm IESD, more than two-thirds of school districts in the United States have mobile technologies deployed in a significant number of their classrooms. The report, “2014 National Survey on Mobile Technology for K-12 Education,” surveyed more than 300 school district leaders to gauge their attitudes toward mobile technology and examine how mobile tech is being used in instruction. The report — the third annual edition — was produced by IESD in collaboration with STEM Market Impact and MCH Strategic Data. According to the report, 70.8 percent of district leaders said that mobile tech has been adopted in at least a quarter of their schools, with another 9.8 percent saying adoption is likely to happen in the next couple years.
