Among high school studentsIn The Three Screen Report just released by Nielsen, it was found that...
- 85 percent report having an iPod
- 70 percent have a laptop or netbook
- 30 percent have smart phones
For the first time since 2003, when asked to identify the major obstacle to prevent use of technology in school, students in grades 6–12 said “I cannot use my own cell phone, smart phone or Mp3 player in school.” Previously, the top response was “school filters and firewalls.”
11% of teachers and 16% of parents dismiss mobile devices as having no positive impact on learning. (This means that overwhelmingly parents and teachers agree that mobile devices can have a beneficial impact on learning!!!)
67% of teachers think students will be distracted and more than half are concerned that not all students will have access
"Active mobile video users grew by 57% from 2008 to 2009, from 11.2 million to 17.6 million. Much of this increase can be linked to the strong growth of smartphones in the marketplace."
The age bracket watching the most videos on mobile devices is 12-17!
