Survey Finds Mobile Device Use at UW Continues to Rise

Use of mobile devices by UW students continues to grow, according to data from the most recent EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR) study of undergraduate students on information technology.  An analysis of the data by UW-IT indicates that the use of mobile devices for academic purposes has increased at the UW; students use handheld devices to complete a wide range of academic tasks; and faculty see mobile devices as both a distraction and a valuable learning tool.  Learn more about mobile use and view all survey data.


Finding a space to study can be challenging.  As instructors, we often hear from students about the lack of study spaces on campus.  SpaceScout is the answer.  What is SpaceScout?  It’s a web and mobile app that helps you find what you need in a study space.  In addition, users have the ability to rate and review the space, and invite study partners.  This is ideal for group projects.  Visit the SpaceScout website for details.

The CTL was mentioned in the article, “The Deconstruction of the K-12 Teaching” in The Atlantic, specifically for its work on flipped classrooms.  To read the full article, go to The Atlantic.
