Following are seven trends in digital learning<http://blog.tomorrow.org/index.php/2017/05/10/speak-up-7-for-2017-top-digital-learning-trends-in-k-12-schools> based on the the Speak Up 2016 data.

  3.  Online videos and games top the list of types of digital content being used in classrooms.
  4.  Students are using mobile devices (for learning) differently when directed by a teacher and when self-directing their own learning.
  5.  Teachers, administrators, parents and students remain on different pages when it comes to using technology for learning.

2) Teachers’ Readiness and Willingness to Adopt Digital Tools for Learning

Also at the ASU GSV Summit this week, we explored the current state of teachers’ readiness and willingness to adopt digital tools for learning with Alan Arkatov from USC Rossier School of Education, Ann Linson from East Noble School Corporation and Jessie Woolley-Wilson from DreamBox Learning.

Everyone see lots of technology in schools these days, but is that technology also changing teaching and learning? Read the blog post: http://blog.tomorrow.org/index.php/2017/05/08/teachers-readiness-and-willingness-to-adopt-digital-tools-for-learning/

3) 10 Things Everyone Should Know about K-12 Students’ Digital Learning
Aided by technology, students across the country are self-directing their own learning, no longer waiting for teachers or schools to catch up. More than 400,000 K-12 students shared how and when they learn via the Speak Up 2016 Research Project for Digital Learning.
In our latest Speak Up data release, T<http://blog.tomorrow.org/index.php/2017/05/08/students-take-charge-of-learning/>en Things Everyone Should Know about K-12 Students’ Digital Learning, 2017<http://blog.tomorrow.org/index.php/2017/05/08/students-take-charge-of-learning/>, Project Tomorrow details some of the findings from the student responses:

  *   Access to mobile devices in and out of school continues to grow. Over just a two-year period, twice as many students are now using Chromebooks in school (2014 to 2016).
  *   Students are using mobile devices to self-direct learning by:

     *    doing research on the Internet (84%)
     *   looking up class information (59%)
     *   creating documents to share (54%)
     *   emailing teachers with questions (47%)
     *   setting up reminders about class due dates (43%)
     *   taking notes (40%)

  *   Students are exploring online learning. More than one-third of middle school students say they have already taken an online class in Math, Science and English. The subjects that top their wish list for online classes include: college prep/study skills (58%), art appreciation (58%), world languages (56%), career technical/vocational education (51%) and computer science (47%).
  *   More than 1/3 of students say they want to learn about future jobs and careers via online tools: online course, digital game, online videos and social media.

4) USC’s Rossier School of Education is our new research partner!
At the ASU GSV 2017 Summit<https://www.asugsvsummit.com/>, Project Tomorrow announced a new partnership with the University of Southern California’s <http://www.tomorrow.org/pressroom/USC-Rossier-higher-Ed-Research-Partner.html> Rossier School of Education<http://rossier.usc.edu/> that will expand and enhance the organization’s internationally recognized Speak Up Research Project for Digital Learning.
A key component of this new partnership is the recognition of Rossier as the exclusive higher education research partner for the Speak Up research data. As such, faculty at Rossier will get access to the nationally aggregated data sets from the Speak Up Research Project for Digital Learning to support research projects and advance journal articles in conjunction with Project Tomorrow.
