In celebration of TCEA 2017 this week, we’ve put together an infographic about Texas teachers’ use of digital content. Click on the image to the right or the button below to download the infographic.

Key data from the infographic:

59% say a classroom set of mobile devices (laptops, tablets, Chromebooks) for student use is needed to use digital content, resources, and tools more effectively in instruction
52% of Texas teachers use digital, video, or online games in their classrooms. 49% of US teachers use this type of digital content.
