September 19, 2012

Here’s an infographic that I found on siliconrepublic,ie, an Irish technology news website.

Personally I think this kind of study is very interesting, especially considering students generally engaged in social media and technology all the time.

Do you see yourself fitting into any of these categories? Do you find any of these results surprising, or are they not surprising at all?

    It is more easy to study using social media and technology. More specific, it’s easy to access. So I think many people use social media when they searching something that they don’t know well.

    We take advantage of the technology when we study. Also we use social media and technology in class. Technology or social media count for most of the life.

    I can see many categories that I am fitting into such as online couses, smart phone, and so on. Above results are not that surprising to me for several reasons. First of all, online courses are popular these days among studens. The number of students who prefer taking online courses is increasing than ever before. According to student`s requirement, the school also tries to increase online courses. As a result, it become quite common to study in online. Second, more and more students are communicating with their professors via email. Therefore, professors write down their email adresses in syllabus with their office hours and phone numer. Finally, students use their smart phone during classes frequently. They use this device to search information which is closely related to their studying topics or take notes. Thanks to this equipment, students are able to find what they need any time they want. In conclusion, this phenomenon is quite familiar with me. Personally, I think it is natural to use digital devices nowadays.

    Electronic devices are used in most classes that I’ve taken. Professors usually post materials on the website, so that students can access anytime. I think connecting with students through social media is important. I usually communicate with professors via email and text messages. For example, blogging assignments are very useful for not only improving English but connecting with professors.
    But I don’t agree that 70% of students take notes on digital devices and 3/4 of students prefer tablet computers to textbooks. It is convenient for me to take notes on papers and textbooks. And my eyes get tired easily when I see the screen.
    These days, I’m feeling that many students use a smarphone during a class. Laptops, smartphones, tablets are very helpful for learning, but they can distract our concentration. Sometimes, the class using Power Point presentations is very boring for me and I can’t focus that way of teaching more than using a white board.
    Anyway, I think I fit into most categories. And maybe more electronic devices will be used in classes in the future.
