Abstract

Deployment of Tablets/Mobile Devices in K-12 Schools 2017


Deployment of Tablets/Mobile Devices in K-12 Schools 2017 provides information on the penetration in U.S. K-12 schools of educational tablets, e-readers and smartphones and the extent of the use of mobile devices in education. Additionally, data is provided on what tablet brands are most popular.

Deployment of Tablets/Mobile Devices in K-12 Schools 2017 is the second in a series of reports from Simba Information providing information on the K-12 education market, specifically how K-12 schools are supplementing traditional instructional materials in classrooms with growing implementations of technology.

The report also looks at what sources schools tap for technology purchases, with district/local funds being the most frequently cited source. Additionally, the report provides information on whether schools expect to increase technology spending and how that increase impacts funding available for instructional materials spending.

This report, and the other three in the 2017 publication series on technology in K-12 education (Deployment of Display Devices in K-12 Schools 2017, Deployment of Laptop/Desktop Computing Devices in K-12 Schools 2017, and the summative report K-12 Deployment Patterns and Purchasing Plans for Computing/Display Devices 2017), are based on a survey of educators during the 2016-2017 school year. Those educators included superintendents, district technology coordinators, district curriculum directors, principals and school technology coordinators. All survey responses were cross-tabulated by job title, grade level, school type, region, and other variables in order to present a comprehensive portrait of the various pockets within the overall technology market in K-12 schools in the 2016-17 school year.
