CDW-G (2009) The 2009 21st-Century Campus Report: Defining the Vision Vernon Hills IL: CDW-G
CDW is a leading provider of technology solutions for business, government and education. Now in its second year, the CDW-G 21st-Century Campus Report examines the current and future role of technology in higher education. CDW-G surveyed more than 1,000 college students, faculty and Information Technology (IT) staff members to understand their respective perceptions of campus technology.
Some key findings:
- Students increasingly associate educational value with campus technology; 81% use technology every day to prepare for class, up from 63% in 2008
- Students rate faculty lack of tech knowledge as the biggest obstacle to classroom technology integration and see it as a growing problem
- Just 32% of students and 22% of faculty strongly agree that their college/university is preparing students to successfully use technology when they enter the workforce
