There can be no denying teenage reliance on their portable devices and Online provides a nice infographic on how college students are using their smartphones.

The dominant activity appears to be communication, although no data is presented on social media use.

If “idle time” is dominanted by smartphone use, is it still idle time?

I’ve just finished gathering data from a survey of high school students enrolled in elearning courses, on how they use their cell phones–there are some amazing results. Look for it in the future!




About kevin

A long-time technology enthusiast who, in the mid 80's, thought the internet might be something that would catch-on, so he taught himself programming. That started him on a very satisfying road as a course developer, trainer, online teacher and elearning evangelist. Thirty years later, he fancies himself to be a "futurist" and "thought leader".... those thoughts are more about learning that doesn't involve expensive technology and a vision of the future that makes education more critical than ever!
