We're moving into a more mobile-centric world.
A new survey examined the device preferences of over 2,000 college students and found that phones are slowly taking over student's websurfing, edging out desktops and laptops 45.7 percent to 43.4 percent. EdTech Magazine has a fantastic overview of the final report that'll make for a good weekend read. Check it out below.
There are a handful of other good pieces out there this week, including EdSurge's look at what blended learning models can do for teacher shortages. We're also nerding out about a new guest post from Katie Henderson this week, which is all about formative and summative assessment.
Enjoy the last days of August and our weekly picks.
