An Interview with Ann and William Huffman, Northern Arizona University

Ann Huffman, Assistant Professor at Northern Arizona University and Bill Huffman, Associate Professor at Northern Arizona University, examined factors which increase the likelihood that students will use technology effectively. Research with a college population assessed the technological skills of students. Results suggest that learning orientation and perception of use of technology in future occupations predict students' perceived ability and intentions to use technology in college.

In this 14 minute interview, Ann and Bill Huffman discuss their studies into student technological mastery and how their findings may lead to the ultimate goal of creating an even technological playing field for students. This interview was conducted at the EDUCAUSE Western Regional Conference in San Francisco, California, where they were presenting a session entitled, Student Technological Mastery: It's Not Just the Hardware.
