Connected learning: How is mobile technology impacting education? - Beth Stone, Brookings

The virtue of such electronic information is the greater control students have over their curriculum, allowing them to proceed at their own pace and in their own style. The digital revolution enables real-time assessment of student performance. Finally, mobile technology can transform learning and act as a catalyst for creating impactful change in the current system. West concludes by saying that connected learning through the use of technology is crucial to student development in the areas of critical-thinking and collaborative learning. Those are the skills that young people need in order to secure their place in the globally competitive economy. http://www.brookings.edu/blogs/brown-center-chalkboard/posts/2015/12/01-connected-learning-mobile-technology-education-stone
