A new study finds that students are using tech for self-directed learning outside of school. Though just over half of K–12 students have access to a one-to-one device program at school, 56 percent of students say they use more technology at home than in school. Perhaps this stat is a bit startling, but the new research from Project Tomorrow indicates that overall students are quite interested in exploring more self-directed learning at home, eSchool News reports. “Students have always self-directed some of their own learning, but with the explosion of mobile devices, 24/7 connectivity and digital resources, students are leaving adults behind as they explore subjects that interest them in the ways they learn best,” says Julie Evans, Project Tomorrow’s CEO, in the report.
