  2. 2. “In terms of demographic profiling, a surprising finding is that older students tended to favor tablets (p=0.0004), smartphones (p<0.0001), and e- readers (p=0.0082) over younger students. Cost could be a factor here, with younger students not having the purchasing power to acquire these devices. But regardless of the reason, these data suggest that students transitioning directly form secondary to postsecondary education are not prepared to use these devices as academic tools, or at least haven’t found them to be very or extremely important yet.” ECAR National Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology, 2012 Smartphone ownership demographics Source: Pew Research Center’s Internet &American Life Project April 26-May 22, 2011 and January 20-February 19, 2012 tracking surveys.For 2011 data, n=2,277 adults ages 18 and older, including 755 interviews conducted onrespondent’s cell phone.
