Pew Study: Educators More Dependent on Mobile Devices Than Ever

According to recent surveys from Pew Research Center, educators are more dependent on mobile devices than ever before: 92% of these teachers say the internet has a “major impact” on their ability to access content, resources, and materials for their teaching 69% say the internet has a “major impact” on their ability to share ideas with other teachers 67% say the internet has a “major impact” on their ability to interact with parents and 57% say it has had such an impact on enabling their interaction with students.

Further, four in ten educators report using e-readers for classroom assignments. Unfortunately, teachers of lower income students are 17% less likely to engage mobile technology in classroom instruction.
