The 2009 Edition Of The ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and
Information Technology ...




Since 2004, the annual ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and
Information Technology has sought to shed light on how information
technology affects the college experience. We ask students about the
technology they own and how they use it in and out of their academic
world. We gather information about how skilled students believe they are
with technologies; how they perceive technology is affecting their
learning experience; and their preferences for IT in courses. 


The ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology,
2009 is a longitudinal extension of the 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008
studies. It is based on quantitative data from a spring 2009 survey of
30,616 freshmen and seniors at 103 four-year institutions and students
at 12 two-year institutions; student focus groups that included input
from 62 students at 4 institutions; and review of qualitative data from
written responses to open-ended questions.


In addition to studying student ownership, experience, behaviors,
preferences, and skills with respect to information technologies, the
2009 study also includes a special focus on student ownership and use of
Internet-capable handheld devices.
