Technology and Student Life

 

The lives of U.S. students are day by day becoming more enmeshed in digital technologies, from e-mail to internet messaging, and from blogs to cellular phones and social networking applications. Less clear, however, are the meanings and impact of these technologies on students' social lives, learning, an dgroup formation. This collection appreciates that the media ecology of student life is transforming quickly. Technology is student life thus offers a rich ethnographic site.
