It’s been up for about a week, but if you haven’t had a chance to check it out, the new issue of Technology Counts 2010 is all about how mobile technologies are taking hold in K-12 classrooms around the country. We here at Education Week Digital Directions worked hard to bring you up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of mobile technologies in education, and hopefully there’s something in there for everyone to appreciate. There are profiles of several different types of mobile devices, including laptops, smartphones, TeacherMates, and iPods, as well as articles about funding mobile initiatives, creating content for mobile devices, and how portable tech tools are being used for education internationally. There’s also a section breaking down the research on this subject. Check out the full report here.
We also hosted a chat here on edweek.org yesterday with Shawn Gross, the project director of Project K-Nect, and Mark Hess, the principal of a middle school with a 1-to-1 laptop program that has been in place for 10 years and counting, as a follow-up to the report. Lots of great questions and information are in the chat archive for those of you who weren’t able to join us live.
