Description

This study examines the relationship between college aged students and educational use of technology now that many teachers have adapted their classrooms to millennials’ learning styles. Prior studies have shown that millennials do better with collaborative projects and multimedia resources and have also examined the positive and negative effects of technology on academic performance. Using survey methodology, we will investigate student attitudes toward communication and technology, differences (if any) by major area of study, and relationships between positive attitudes to technology and academic confidence and success. Results should be of use to educators looking to adjust their delivery formats in class to adapt to the ways millennials retain information.
