Snapshot: Personal Electronic Devices Owned by Students

Eduventures research on technology use by 18-24 year old college students. Almost all students own a cell phone, 79% own a laptop, and 73% own a media player. Students spend up to 5 hours a day online, about half of that for school. Email was the most popular communication tool.
