College Students & Technology

A new Pew Internet and American Life Project study explores College Students and Technology.

"Overview:  By every key measurement, college students lead the way in tech and gadget use. But community college students do not use digital tools as much as four-year college students and graduate students."

"About the Survey: The data in this report come from Pew Internet Project surveys conducted throughout 2010, which were bundled together to collect a statistically meaningful population of those who said they attended community college, four-year schools, and graduate schools". -- Aaron Smith, Lee Rainie, Kathryn Zickuhr, Pew Research Center, 7/19/11

Included is information pertaining to how students are accessing the Internet (broadband & wireless), networking sites for different student populations (undergrad, graduate, community college) as compared to non-students and all adults, technology ownership (phones, computers, tablets), and the role cell phones play regarding "Internet connectivity."
