From chalkboards to tablets: the emergence of the K-12 digital learner

4 Jun 2013
Description

This report provides a bird's eye view of the changing environment for digital learning, both in and out of school.

As the digital learner has emerged over the past ten years, we have noticed a significant shift in the student perspective on using technology for learning. To bring new insights and context to this digital learning metamorphosis, the report examines the current views of students from Kindergarten through 12th grade with a special look at digital learners in third, sixth, ninth and twelfth grades. Where appropriate a comparison of ideas was made between this year’s digital learners and their predecessors over the past ten years.

The report addresses the following questions:

  • What is the students’ vision for digital learning today and how has that vision evolved over the past ten years? 
  • How well are we meeting the current aspirations and expectations of our students, Kindergarten through 12th Grade, for using emerging technologies to personalize their learning process?  
  • What can we learn from the emergence of the digital learner that can impact the future of education?
