July 7 – K-12 ed tech round-up

The Software & Information Industry Association, a trade group, has published the results of their Spring 2010 survey of K-20 educational institutions. The survey reports on current and projected educational technology trends. The report is available here (PDF).

ReadWriteWeb.com reports on a study they conducted that asked school children about their current technology use, and what technology they want in the future.

While it’s not too surprising that kids today think about digital technologies (and the experiences they enable) as a given, the study found that kids desire increasingly immersive content experiences, better integration of digital technology into physical objects, spaces and activities, and more intuitive interfaces – 37% of participants’ creations didn’t even bother with the traditional keyboard/mouse interface.
