What digital instruction means for teachers
Fresh off the heels of Digital Learning Day 2014 and on the precipice of Edsurge’s 2nd Edtech for Schools Summit in Baltimore, it’s more evident than ever that K-12 teachers are rapidly embracing digital, web-based tools similar to those that have transformed and enhanced the work of professionals in many other industries, Kalix Communications reports. While K-12 education has been late to adopt such tools due to inequity of student access to technology, the digital revolution is finally sweeping through classrooms. Internet access through personal devices and computers have become increasingly prolific in American households- to the point where there are 5.7 connected devices per home. Additionally, the number of educational resources available online has exploded and, for instance, there are now over 700,000 accredited educational videos on YouTube Edu.
