The ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology, 2007 - Key Findings
Wednesday, September 12, 2007
This document presents the key findings of The ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology, 2007. This 2007 ECAR research study is a longitudinal extension of the 2004, 2005, and 2006 ECAR studies of students and information technology. The study, which reports noticeable changes from previous years, is based on quantitative data from a spring 2007 survey and interviews with 27,846 freshman, senior, and community college students at 103 higher education institutions. It focuses on what kinds of information technologies these students use, own, and experience; their technology behaviors, preferences, and skills; how IT impacts their experiences in their courses; and their perceptions of the role of IT in the academic experience.
