Education is no longer about pencils and schoolbooks but iPads and internet connections, a new infographic charting the evolution of the use of technology in education shows.

The infographic published by MAT@USC on Visual.ly starts with the year 1635, with the founding of the first public school in the US, and runs up to the year 2011, when New York City public schools order iPad tablet computers for their students.

"Technology has drastically evolved over the years to become one of the most used tools in today’s world of education," the infographic’s introduction states.
