Hello and happy Friday to you.
This was a good week. It really was. We found some interesting pieces on general technology implementation in schools that we're excited to share. You'll find a Hechinger Report article below that simply asks the question: now that there are more computers in schools, how are they being used?
(Cool fact from that story: "The number of devices in schools increased 71 percent from 1999 to 2012, a rate that is notable because it is twice the increase seen in other non-residential buildings.")
Plenty of other good reads after the jump. We included some stuff on Google's impact on student learning, Digital Learning Day 2016, and bridging the digital divide. Get it while it's hot.
