Abstract:This exploratory research study looks at how graduate students use their smartphones outside of the classroom for work related to their classes and research. The participants interviewed were two American and two South Korean graduate students. In particular, the locations of use, the perceived impact of smartphone use on academic success, and national differences were compared. The results from this preliminary study suggest that graduate students engage in smartphone use for multiple reasons, and that those reasons are contextual and situationally specific. The goal of this research study is to critically analyze and compare the behaviors of domestic and international graduate students in the United States to understand how they utilize their smartphones for academic purposes.
