ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Technology, 2013

“Do you have a smartphone?” “Do you have a laptop?” “Have you tried online resource to learn new topics?”

Thinking about how much time you spend on smartphone and computer every day can make us easily understand the importance of technology in our daily life and academics. To understand our undergraduate students’ experiences with and attitudes towards technology, we will join a web-based survey run by EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research (ECAR), 25 February – 12 April, 2013. The survey aims to “explore technology ownership, use, and perceptions of technology among undergraduate students”.  By knowing the technology experiences from students, we can understand the student technology trends, their technical skills and impact of IT on their academic experience. 

We invite all HKU undergraduate students over 18 years old to participate in the survey which takes no more than 20 minutes to complete. Students' participation is important because the results will help us understand how to use technology more effectively to benefit students.

Please notice the bulk email message from the Dean of Student Affairs on “Invitation to participate in a survey on Student Use of Technology in HKU” sent to all undergraduates on February 27, 2013 for details and the survey URL link.

The survey report 2012 is available at http://www.educause.edu/library/resources/ecar-study-undergraduate-students-and-information-technology-2012. More information about ECAR is available at http://www.educause.edu/ecar.
