Mobile technology has been widely adopted in schools because of the collaborative and learning possibilities they open up. Chromebooks, Macbooks, iPads and Android tablets are some of the most widely used mobile devices in educational environments.
The increase in mobility adoption has resulted in many device management challenges – such as the need to keep students connected and focused during classroom instruction. The need to ensure minimal distractions while facilitating productive usage of mobile devices in the classroom has become more and more apparent to school IT teams over the years. A 2017 report by Project Tomorrow, a national education research nonprofit organization, reported some interesting figures regarding technology and mobility adoption in day-to-day classroom learning.
