It’s no surprise that college students are gadget crazy, but there are also mobile dependent. A recent survey shows us that 47% own a smart phone and 7% own a tablet. But their attitudes towards tablets point to a growing ownership trend:
- Nearly 70% of college students think that tablets will transform the way students learn in the future
- 63% believe that tablets will enhance their learning experience
- Almost half think tablets will replace textbooks in the next 5 years
What Does This Means To You?
Besides being a huge consumer base right now, college students are the technology trend setters of tomorrow. Nearly 40% of college students admitted not being able to go 10 minutes without checking a digital device. Odds are they will not become less digitally dependent. You need to be invested in mobile opportunities to capitalize on this consumer base. If you aren’t, it’s a good bet their competition will.
