Tomorrow.org surveys 400,000: discovers students want personalized, digital, mobile learning
The organization Tomorrow.org recently published a study that determined students want personalized, digital, mobile learning. That's exactly the type of learning e-books can offer. The "Speak Up" survey polled more than 400,000 people in the United States and was published in April 2012. Bottom line? The report states "The infiltration of a sweeping range of different technologies into our everyday lives has created an expectation that all interactions should be highly personalized to meet our individualistic needs." How well are our schools meeting this expectation? E-books are uniquely suited to meeting this goal.
