Apple iPads are Dominant Tablet in U.S. K-12 Schools

STAMFORD, Conn., June 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Apple iPads are the most widely used tablet computing devices in U.S. K-12 schools and are the educational tablets schools rank highest in terms of future tablet purchasing plans, according to Deployment of Tablets/Mobile Devices in K-12 Schools 2017, a new report from Simba Information.

Mobile Devices as K-12 Education Resources

“Tablets, ereaders and smartphones are being purchased by schools for teacher and student use and are being brought into classrooms as part of bring-your-own-technology initiatives,” said Karen Meaney, a senior analyst in Simba Information’s Education Group. “However, tablet penetration in schools has slowed because of the growing popularity of Chromebooks.”

Educators surveyed for Deployment of Tablets/Mobile Devices in K-12 Schools 2017 overwhelmingly believe that using digital education resources such as tablets and other mobile devices in the classroom with students makes the learning process more engaging and personalized. However, less than half of surveyed educators said they have hard evidence—like test scores—that use of mobile devices improves student academic performance.
