Digital technology in post-secondary learning is here to stay, according to a new report. Eight in 10 college students surveyed said that the use of tech improves their grades (81 percent), lets them spend more time studying by increasing the accessibility they have to their materials (82 percent) and improves their efficiency (81 percent). A comparable number (80 percent) said they find that their instructors are “effectively” integrating digital learning tech into their courses. Where technology isn’t as useful as an academic tool, according to students, is helping them improve their “soft skills,” such as interacting with others or working in groups; only 46 percent agreed with that statement. Those results come from “Digital Study Trends: Student Habits,” a survey done on behalf of McGraw-Hill Education by Hanover Research among 3,311 current college students, most of whom have used digital technology from McGraw-Hill.
