2016 Student and Technology Research Study Infographic
EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR) collaborated with 183 institutions to collect responses from 71,641 undergraduate students across 25 countries about their technology experiences. The findings the 2016 Student and Technology Research Study are distilled into four broad themes to help educators and higher education institutions better understand how students experience technology on their respective campuses and the ways in which new, better, or more technology can impact students’ relationship with information technology.

- The Technology Experiences of Students
- The Technology Preferences of Students
- The Effects of Technology on Students

So, why does information and research like this matter? These findings help shed light onto the overall growing trends with regards to three out of the four mission-critical areas colleges and universities need to understand in order to create large-scale campus wifi networks. Take a look at the 2016 Student and Technology Research Study Infographic which provides a general overview of the larger study. View the fall report. here.
