Could You Do Without Technology?

Technology is more important in students’ lives than ever before.  From e-mail to text messages to video blogs, students are more connected to the world than in the past– even when on-the-go.

That’s why it’s no surprise I had a professor who used to e-mail us just 2 hours before class time to add articles to that day’s reading list. He knew we would be attached to our laptops and smartphones, so there was really no excuse for being unprepared.  I would frantically check my email right before class to make sure I completed each task– last minute or not.

And I guess I’m not alone.  According to a recent survey of 500 American college students, 38% admitted to checking their laptops, smart phones, and other devices every 10 minutes. The same survey found that 73% of students rely on technology to help them study.

I can say without a doubt that I (and my professor’s last minute requests) contributed to these statistics in college. Do you fall into one of these categories? Which piece of technology are you most reliant on?
