  11. 11. (c) Project Tomorrow 2014 “When students are using digital resources, building multi-media projects, collaborating and connecting online and conducting online research, they are more interested in school work today, and feel more connected to what their future holds tomorrow.” Dr. Mark Edwards, Superintendent Mooresville Graded School District, North Carolina

  14. 14. (c) Project Tomorrow 2014 Key findings include: Students use mobile devices in the classroom to both make their existing schoolwork processes more effective and to transform the way they approach learning. Students are using digital tools to support collaborative writing, both in and out of the classroom, reflecting the importance of good writing skills as a prerequisite for college and career readiness. Students in online learning environments are more interested in what they are learning at school, more motivated to do well, and feel a stronger connection to their school than other students.
  15. 15. (c) Project Tomorrow 2014 Key findings include: Students have a clear idea of the value of digital learning within various innovative classroom models with high interest in:  social media to provide opportunities for them to connect and collaborate with peers and experts,  mobile devices that enable untethered learning experiences, and  online, blended, and flipped classes that that marry digitally rich content with real-world relevance.
