According to Project Tomorrow CEO Julie Evans and the national Speak Up Survey, students have a very specific idea of how they want to engage technology to enhance the learning process.  The top for items include:
  • Are continuing to be interested in social-based learning;
  • Want to build their own personal learning network with expert resources;
  • "Are looking for tools that increase untethered learning; and
  • Want a digitally rich learning environment, unencumbered by traditional rules."
