Info-graphic: Schools Like Social Media

I am a strong proponent of using mobile devices in schools and teaching our students responsible cell phone usage. The Association of Curriculum and Development has taken statistics and composed this interesting info-graphic about students and mobile learning. According to the research banning mobile devices does NOT work. Here are some of my favorite statistics based on the info-graphic:

  • 63% of students want online textbooks that allow them to communicate with their classmates
  • 69% of schools in the US ban cell-phone use
  • Teens use 12-17 social networking websites to communicate with friends
  • 63% of students use cell phones in school even if they are banned
