Students and Technology

The results of the "ECAR National Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology, 2011 Report" illuminates how technology affects how students learn. Here are some of their key findings:

  • Students are drawn to hot technologies, but they rely on more traditional devices
  • Students report technology delivers major academic benefits
  • Students report uneven perceptions of institutions' and instructors' use of technology
  •  Facebook generation students juggle personal and academic interactions
  • Students prefer, and say they learn more in, classes with online components
