10 Ways College Students Use Technology | Edudemic (Infographic) | WiredPlanet | Scoop.it

 

Did you know that a new study from NortonLive shows "that 1/3 of college students find technology issues to be among their top three stressors (even more so than financial issues or studying for finals)."

This infographic provides additional findings such as:

* the average amount spent on technology was $760

* a laptop/desktop computer malfunction would be a "complete disaster" according to 81%

For more information check out the infographic.

Are you a Betamax?

Now that we are all excited about integrating iPads into the classroom, what’s next? What are we all going to do in 18.. 24.. 36.. months when the next great device comes along? Are we all going to just start over? How do we, as educators, avoid being the next Betamax: that flash in the pan that couldn’t scale up and adjust to a rapidly changing market?

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, March 23, 2013 9:02 PM

As a writer, I find this set of predictions both interesting and, well, less than overwhelming. I'd like to see more creativity, especially with regard to the "least likely" possibilities, and less focus on tech companies. I'm more interested in thinking about what life might be like, than in which social media giant is on top. What predictions do you have, and what do you think are the odds for or against?

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 19, 2013 5:11 PM

Hmmm can we predict the future... will be interesting to see what happens with these tools.

This Is The Official iPad Mini Comparison Guide | Edudemic | WiredPlanet | Scoop.it

"The iPad Mini is here. At a starting price of $329 though, it may not be the silver bullet for education everyone hoped it was. That’s just $70 off the base price of the ‘big’ iPad. For schools itching to start a 1:1 setup, BYOD, or just deploy iPads in general, the iPad Mini may be worth checking out. A total game-changer for education? Probably not."
