Report Examines Status of Education Around the World

According to a report by OECD on the state of education around the world, consumers now spend more time in mobile applications than they do on PCs. Consumers spend an average of 77 minutes per day using smartphone apps (separate from tablet usage). For the first time since 2008, time spent on social networking apps now rivals time spent on games. Social networking app usage is trending upward, while game app usage is trending downward. The report also provides key information on the output of educational institutions, the impact of learning across countries, the financial and human resources invested in education, access and progression in education, and the learning environment and organization of schools.
