Smartphones and HE Students:
 some data and some issues
        Christine Davies
2011 Research from Google (carried out in 2 phases) indicates that smartphone (ie.
internet-enabled mobile phone) usage is rising, particularly in the UK
(graphic from : http://bit.ly/IVI3w3)
But do HE students use smartphones?
% smartphone usage from recent studies

• London Metropolitan University students
   (2010-11) - 87% (Bradley 2011)
• Sheffield Hallam 2010 - 69% (Woodcock et al,
   2012)
...but...
• NUS/HSBC Student Experience Survey for
   2010-2011 - 32%
Recent data from University of Glamorgan

• student experience questionnaire, May 2011
• Total questionnaire response = 133, with 55
  students answering questions on technology
• 60% of respondents had an internet-enabled
  phone; only half of these stated that they
  used their smartphones for learning

Data presented at University of Greenwich, July 2011:
https://showtime.gre.ac.uk/index.php/edu/tel-conference/paper/view/21, and will also appear in an article in ‘Compass’, the
Learning and Teaching journal for the UnIversity of Greenwich
Issues
• Differences in survey methodology affect data
• Though on the rise, Smartphone usage is
  variable and may not have reached 50% in
  some institutions
• Students may think of mobile phones and
  ‘learning’ as mutually exclusive

Smartphones and HE students

  • 1. Smartphones and HE Students: some data and some issues Christine Davies
  • 2. 2011 Research from Google (carried out in 2 phases) indicates that smartphone (ie. internet-enabled mobile phone) usage is rising, particularly in the UK (graphic from : http://bit.ly/IVI3w3)
  • 3. But do HE students use smartphones?
  • 4. % smartphone usage from recent studies • London Metropolitan University students (2010-11) - 87% (Bradley 2011) • Sheffield Hallam 2010 - 69% (Woodcock et al, 2012) ...but... • NUS/HSBC Student Experience Survey for 2010-2011 - 32%
  • 5. Recent data from University of Glamorgan • student experience questionnaire, May 2011 • Total questionnaire response = 133, with 55 students answering questions on technology • 60% of respondents had an internet-enabled phone; only half of these stated that they used their smartphones for learning Data presented at University of Greenwich, July 2011: https://showtime.gre.ac.uk/index.php/edu/tel-conference/paper/view/21, and will also appear in an article in ‘Compass’, the Learning and Teaching journal for the UnIversity of Greenwich
  • 6. Issues • Differences in survey methodology affect data • Though on the rise, Smartphone usage is variable and may not have reached 50% in some institutions • Students may think of mobile phones and ‘learning’ as mutually exclusive
