College students are embracing the smartphones, ipads and the ereaders in full swing as they are only making their academic lives better.
According to the research compiled by Presta Electronics, more than 90% use email to communicate with professors and 73% say they cannot study without technology. Seven in 10 take notes on keyboards instead of paper, and most use digital tools when preparing a presentation.
38% of students can’t go more than 10 minutes without checking their smartphone or other device.
