Laird, Thomas F. Nelson; Kuh, George D.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Forum of the Association for Institutional Research (AIR) (44th, Boston, MA, May 28-Jun 2, 2004)
Considerable efforts have been made to get students to use information technology for educational purposes. This study uses data from the 2003 administration of the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) to investigate the relationships between student uses of information technology and other forms of student engagement. The results suggest that there is a strong positive relationship between using information technology for educational purposes and other effective educational practices such as active and collaborative learning and student-faculty interaction. The results also raise questions about whether engagement with information technology should be viewed as a form of engagement in and of itself. Perhaps when students use information technology it increases the opportunities for other types of engagement. (Contains 6 tables.)
