Kids and Mobile EdTech


Edudemic posted an infographic yesterday that I loved.  So I thought I’d share it here with you guys.  I think it does a nice job of showing what’s going on with educational apps!  Mobile learning and apps are here to stay!  Happy Weekend!

    Thanks for sharing his graphic. There’s a lot of great facts to show American parents the advantages of mobile Ed tech. However, what about the rest of the world. I teach in South Korea where there is an abundance of mobile tech. We are considered the most connected country in the world. However, we also have one of the highest rates of game addiction as well. I’ve been advocating for mobile tech in my classes for years but I still run into the same worried parents. To be honest, as a parent now myself I am also worried that my five year old will become too reliant on the iPad than her own brain in the future.
