Take the Digital Learning Trends Quiz

Since 2007, Blackboard and Project Tomorrow have collaborated to create annual reports that focus on the year-to-year trends in the use of digital learning tools to change the classroom learning paradigm. These trend reports are based on an in-depth analysis of the latest Speak Up data findings.

Before diving into the latest report, have some fun and test your digital learning trends knowledge. How do your insights match up against the study’s findings? There’s only one way to find out! Test your knowledge to discover if you’re a myth buster master or if you need a refresher when it comes to digital learning trends.
