On April 30, 2015, Project Tomorrow released the report "Digital Learning 24/7: Understanding Technology - Enhanced Learning in the Lives of Today's Students" at a Congressional Briefing held in Washington, D.C.


Key findings from this year's report include:

  • Many administrators are finding that blended learning environments hold great promise
  • Students in blended environments use technology more frequently than their peers in more traditional classroom settings
  • When students have access to technology as part of their learning, their use of digital tools is deeper and more sophisticated
  • Only 27% of high school principals reported they are not yet offering online courses for students
  • Almost 3/4 of students agreed that every student should be able to use a mobile device during the school day for learning
  • Students connect the use of technology tools in learning to the development of college, career, and citizenship schools
