Student Communication and Study Habits of First-Year University Students in the Digital Era
Gallardo-Echenique, Eliana; Bullen, Mark; Marqués-Molías, Luis
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v42 n1 Spr 2016
This paper reports on research into the study habits of-university students, their use digital technologies and how they communicate with each other and their professors. We conclude that most students feel comfortable with digital technologies and that they use social media for connecting and interacting with friends rather than for academic communication. Students prefer face-to-face communication for both academic/school and social communication and they prefer to learn by themselves, work independently and to study at home.
