  • 425,000 Apps available100,000 iPad Apps30% are free15 Billion Downloads200 million iOS users in 90 countriesIf you want to put the number of downloads into perspective, think about this. Apple announced the 10 billionth download back in January. In the past 5 months, Apple has seen over 5 billion apps downloaded from its App Store. That’s half of the downloads from the entire 2 and a half years that the App Store had been open.Today’s release did not give any details on the split between free and paid apps, but it did say that Apple has paid developers more than $2.5 billion over the past 3 years. This would suggest that developers earned about $.16 per download.
  • In education, three key technology-related shifts are underway that shows this to be an idea whose time has finally come.The first involves shifting computers from school tech labs to classrooms and from classrooms to pupils’ backpacks. The second replaces books and print-based analogues with online curricula and digital content. The third removes one-size-fits all, teacher-at-front-of-the room instructional approaches in favour of personalised lessons, assessments, and instructional modalities."Global education strategist Dr Mark Westo
