College Students Now Prefer Reading Digital Books to Print, Survey Finds | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning

College Students Now Prefer Reading Digital Books to Print, Survey Finds | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning | Modern Educational Technology and eLearning | Scoop.it

"Looking closer at readership of digital books, here are some of the findings:
Seven in 10 college students (70%) have read digital textbooks, compared to 62% a year ago.
Six in 10 high school seniors (58%) have read digital textbooks, compared to 41% a year ago.
Among those students who had previously read a digital textbook, eight in 10 college students (81%) and two-thirds of high school seniors (66%) have read a digital textbook this school year (since September 2011).
Almost six in 10 college students prefer a digital format when reading books for fun (57%) or textbooks for class (58%), while one-third say that they prefer print. This trend can be seen among high school seniors as well, and is mostly driven by an increase in the preference to use tablets for reading.
Other studies have found that e-textbooks still face several obstacles to overcome before digital textbook distribution models become mainstream on college campuses..."

Why There Is No One Way To Go 1:1

Why There Is No One Way To Go 1:1 | Modern Educational Technology and eLearning | Scoop.it

In the end, you can look around at what other schools are doing or have done but that will only get you so far. Every school culture and situtation is different, hence there is no one way to roll out a 1:1 program that is magical and perfect. They all have their positives and negatives. At the end of the day make a decision and just do it!
