Mobile technology is changing the U.S. educational system in profound ways, from how teachers and students interact to how students master material. What does this change look like? How can wireless technology enable, empower and engage students in ways that transform the learning environment both inside and outside of school? And what might be the implications of mobile technology in the classroom?

On September 17, Governance Studies at Brookings hosted a panel to discuss how advances in mobile technology are changing education and improving student engagement and assessment.
