How Are Digital Natives Using Technology?
This ongoing project explores how talented young students are adopting digital technologies at home, at school, and as mobile devices. It investigates how students perceive the role that information and communications technologies play in their own lives and the lives of their families, friends, and teachers. The project also explores how students engage in social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, virtual worlds, and online forums. Technologies include computers, mobile and smartphones, videogames, music players, game consoles, graphics tablets, and other devices.
