mobilityA new report by International Data Corp. states that investments in notebook computers and corporate networks are likely to spur U.S. higher education organizations to spend about $6.6 billion on information technology this year.

IDC said Monday the “Pivot Table: U.S. Education IT Spending Guide“ forecasts K-12 schools to post $4.7 billion in IT spending this year driven by comprehensive computer upgrades.

The guide also predicts that spending on tablets and electronic readers is expected to increase by 8 percent to $522 million by yearend across all education segments and levels.

“IT growth among educational institutions has been spurred by a recovering economy, recovering tax bases and an increase in the number of government education grants,“ said Shawn McCarthy, research director at IDC Government Insights.

“While the drop in PC spending was a bit surprising last year, we expect tablet computers to have a bright future in education, particularly for use in science classes and for one-off training via apps.“
