Weekly Wrap-up: What Tech Obstacles Do Kids Face? Twitter Brand Pages, An iPhone User's First Days on Android and More...by Abraham Hyatt, readwriteweb.com
April 9th 2011 5:00 AM
Our top story this week was Audrey Watters' report on a survey that asked students how they use technology in the classroom. Almost 300,000 students from kindergarden through 12th grade - along with 43,000 parents, 35,000 teachers, 2,000 librarians, 3,500 administrators - took part in the study.
The results show that parents and teachers' desire to either provide or improve access to digital tools in the classroom is strong. And teachers and administrators are confident they're doing a good job using technology to enhance how students learn. But fewer than half the kids agreed. And it's no wonder: The majority of administrators surveyed have no interest in incorporating one of the most common computing devices in the world - the cell phone - into their schools this year.
After the jump you'll find more of this week's top news stories on some of the key trends that are shaping the Web - mobile, location, Internet of Things - plus highlights from our six channels. Read on for more.
