Desktop and laptop PCs still dominate in schools, but iPads already are the second most widely used ed-tech devices in K-12 classrooms just three years after their introduction in 2010, according to an informal survey of educators by the ed-tech company Netop.
What’s more, the survey reveals a dramatic shift in spending toward iPads next year, with 57 percent of educators saying their schools plan to invest in iPads for the 2013-14 school year.
The survey results suggest “there is an exciting transformation going on in schools,” said Kirk Greiner, senior vice president for Netop Education.
