How College Students Use their Mobile Phones?


I recently browsed through numerous infographics and found an interesting infographic “Generation Mobile” created by HackCollege. This infographic was based on a survey administered to a selection of college students over Facebook. It contains some useful information about the use of mobile phones by college students.

    I agree. because I am teaching at university. if I observe carefully about my student’ behavior . 1.iphone and Android are neck and neck for the top spot. 2.Phones never leave their Desk, 3. Nearly all students have texted in class and most do it regularly.
    and I think “most students parents foot the bill”; I don’t think the idea is correct.
    so we must tell our student when on the class, students need to pack up iphone or iPad at backpack

    當下學生喜歡使用隨身必備的智慧型手機,勝過使用桌上型電腦,原因是智慧型手機可在任何時間或地點都能進行使用,大家每日都習慣使用智慧型手機或小型平板電腦,這些無所不在的電子產品早已成了大家的生活必需品,學生會依賴這些先進的電子設備,已成了不能避免的趨勢,應該教導的是如何善用在些工具在有幫助的用途上。雖然大部分的學生用智慧型手機來發簡訊給家人或朋友,檢查社群網站的訊息,和用智慧型手機聽MP3音樂。但我還是相信因為它的便利性也是能變成一個很好用的隨身學習工具,達到大家隨時隨地不離開學習並能立即吸取新知識的好習慣。
