How are college freshmen using the internet?


Data from St. Edward’s freshman orientation about technology use.

There is a fascinating infographic on how college freshmen are interacting with the internet from St. Edwards …

One of the things that I appreciate about this graphic is how well it illustrates the reality of media multiplexity (i.e. using multiple devices simultaneously to communicate) as well as the multimodality of digital communication.

Plus, figuring that I went to college with no computer, no cell phone, no internet, no email address, and just a Brother word processor to go in my closet … my have things changed! =)
