What Trends Are We Seeing? 

Comparing these lists year over year provides us insight into what digital tools students are increasingly using. Here are some trends we’re seeing this year:

  • Increased usage of AI-powered tools. AI assistants (such as Grammarly) are topping the list in 2024. As this technology becomes ubiquitous, teaching students how to use it wisely will soon be an essential part of the modern classroom. 
  • The ability to track student progress is vital. As school districts pursue NETP’s vision of the ‘Portrait of a Graduate,’ which includes technology proficiency, using tools that will enable student progress to be quantified, tracked, and monitored over time (such as IXL.com) will be an important part of their strategy.
  • Gamified learning is gaining popularity. While play has always been a fun and helpful way to learn, the prevalence of online platforms that enable gamified learning (such as ProdigyGame.com) will only continue to grow. 

How Are Students Spending Their Time Online?  


Students are increasingly integrating technology into their daily routines, as evidenced by their online activity patterns.  

Key Takeaways: 

  • A significant portion of students’ time is spent on Learning Management Systems (LMS), indicating the importance of these platforms in organizing schoolwork, accessing learning materials, and submitting assignments.
  • As mentioned above, gamified learning platforms also capture much of students' online engagement, reflecting a shift towards interactive and motivational educational tools that make learning enjoyable.
  • Digital platforms are playing an increasingly substantial role in evaluating and tracking students’ academic progress.
  • Tools that advance cybersecurity remain an important component of district technology plans.

Student Web Activity

The Kajeet Sentinel® platform was developed to meet this pressing need. Sentinel empowers education administrators with detailed, real-time metrics on student activity on the web.

Educators may log into Sentinel at any time to track student online activity on their school-issued Kajeet devices – including both sites they successfully visit, as well as sites they attempt to visit but are blocked from. This data allows them to make informed decisions about what online tools are proving effective for their students, and which may need further evaluation.
