This comprehensive client computing devices report takes information from over 400 interviews with school IT decision makers in the USA. The respondents represent all 50 states, grouped by East Coast, West Coast and Central states.
Understanding the current adoption levels of EdTech in K-12 schools, along with planned investment, is often challenging. This is due to the large number of vendors and the different solutions offered to schools. In addition, the decision-makers and influencers often operate at district level, so CTOs and CIOs do not have the same level of influence typical of other industries.
This report focuses on the current and projected ownership of desktop PCs, laptops, Chromebooks and tablets, as well as the key priorities and obstacles faced.
This client device computing report is one in a series of four reports, with the other three reports covering:
| Audio Visual Devices
| Administration Tools
| Classroom Tools
Schools continue to face increasing pressure regarding budgets and where the funds will come from to facilitate continued investment in classroom
technology, whether that is hardware, software, connectivity or infrastructure.
However, schools are showing a continued commitment to device investment, with most expecting their device ownership levels to increase over the next two years. With increasing pressure on budgets, the focus is likely to be on replacing end of life devices.
