Study: 'Power Users' drive pedagogy- Research suggests tech-savvy students are having an impact in the classroom

"A new survey of teachers and instructors at the high school and post-secondary levels has found that students who excel in the use of information and communications technology (ICT) are driving change in classroom instruction...Dubbed "Power Users," these ultra tech-savvy students have a growing influence over what--and how--teachers now teach, the survey said."

"The study was carried out by Certiport Inc., a provider of technology training, certification, and assessment solutions, and the Education Development Center Inc. (EDC), an international nonprofit organization that researches and implements best practices in health and learning in 50 countries."

"Power Users, as defined by EDC, are the savviest of the "digital natives," a demographic of 10- to 15-year-old students who have grown up with digital technology as a part of their everyday lives."
