Abstract:Our preliminary research design explores the life of college student athletes and their use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) as they plan their transition beyond graduation. While ICTs such as social media, smartphones, and the internet are becoming more ubiquitous in college campuses, student athletes contend with finding ways to seek information in determining the optimal time to transition into professional play. To expand the literature on ICT use among student athletes, our exploratory study seeks to uncover factors that affect ICT use in both their athletic and academic environments. In collecting qualitative data through semi-structured interviews, our work aims to inform future design implications for ICTs used by student athletes.
