Keep in mind when big screen projectors and PowerPoint presentations were considered cutting-edge in the classroom? As recent technology advances, so does innovation in schools at all levels.
In reality, around 91% of teachers in the U.S. have access to computers in the classrooms; Mobile technology is also ruling its position in education. More than 80% of teachers think tablets improve classroom education, and 1 in 5 students have used a mobile app to keep coursework planned.
In the meantime, 6 out of 10 students have used a digital textbook, up from just 4 out of 10 in 2011. As these trends continue, e-textbooks are predictable to frame 11% of textbook income by 2013.
