Speak Up in the news!

In accordance with our first Congressional Briefing earlier this month, the Speak Up 2013 survey data has been featured on several websites and publications - this time it was featured in EdTech Magazine and on the ISTE Connects Blog. Here are some highlighted results from the articles:

  • 89% of high school satudents have access to smartphones, while only 50% have access to tablets.
  • Girls play digital games just as much as boys do — and in some cases more.
  • About a quarter of the teachers surveyed this year reported integrating digital games into their instructional plans.
  • 39% of high school students and 48% of middle school students have access to E-Readers.
