Fall Through the Cracks Friday – Technology Goes to College

In a study released Tuesday by CourseSmart and Wakefield Research, it was found that 73% of college students couldn’t study without some form of technology, and a stunning 38% of students said that they couldn’t go more than 10 minutes without checking their laptop, smartphone, tablet, etc.

From the article:

Many of the students said they used technology for learning tasks traditionally completed with paper. In addition to the unsurprisingly large majority of students who used it to research and write papers (81% and 82% respectively), 70% of the students said they use keyboards rather than paper to take notes and 65% said they use digital devices to create presentations. Technology was also a preferred method for getting in touch with teachers — 91% of the students cited email as a method for seeking extra help from their instructors.
