Kids These Days [Infographic]

Get off my lawn with your iPads, ya hooligans! If you know kids these days, you’ll know that they just love technology, let me tell you what! In fact, there are so many different tools to utilize, it’s hard to even know what kinds to invest in. Cell phone, iphone, ipad, nexus, android, mac, pc, etc. It’s a bit boggling.

This infographic, done by a local college, investigates what percentages of Freshman students are bringing in what. Granted, this is a smaller, private college, so the results may be skewed from your own, but nevertheless illuminates what technologies are being utilized the most in preparation for BECOMING AN ADULT BY GOING TO COLLEGE (echo). In all seriousness though, technologies really are shaping the modern job market and what is possible in global communication, as well as education.

The top-most percentages correspond with the overall campus population. The smallest number of these happens to be desktop computers. This isn’t surprising due to the popular use of laptops for portability and for taking notes in class; but more and more I’ve found that tablets are becoming very popular for this particular task. It’d be awesome to know what percentage would prefer taking notes on tablets as opposed to laptops…

All in all it’s a great age to live in where media, art, and knowledge can be so easily communicated across our planet. The future of education really does lie in the digital realm.
