Last week I chatted with Stuart Brown from StudentAffairs.com for the student affairs forum podcast. We spoke about:
- Variation in technology skills even among students who are “digital natives.”
- Digital inequalities and how these inequalities are reproduced throughout a student’s educational career.
- How digital inequalities in technology use can put students from minority racial/ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds at a disadvantage not just in college but after they graduate.
- Ways that student affairs professionals can help all students be on a “level playing field” with technology skills.
- My research on how Facebook use is related to student academic performance.
- Some of my latest research showing what might be driving the negative relationship between Facebook use and overall GPA.
- Ideas for future research projects (check it out, graduate students!).
