EDUCAUSE has released the ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology, 2012.
Here's an excerpt:
Findings and recommendations reflect four general themes:
- Blended-learning environments are the norm; students say that these environments best support how they learn.
- Students want to access academic progress information and course material via their mobile devices, and institutions deliver.
- Technology training and skill development for students is more important than new, more, or "better" technology.
- Students use social networks for interacting with friends more than for academic communication.
