Rey Junco podcast interview headshotLast week I chatted with Stuart Brown from StudentAffairs.com for the student affairs forum podcast. We spoke about:

  1. Variation in technology skills even among students who are “digital natives.”
  2. Digital inequalities and how these inequalities are reproduced throughout a student’s educational career.
  3. 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.
  4. Ways that student affairs professionals can help all students be on a “level playing field” with technology skills.
  5. My research on how Facebook use is related to student academic performance.
  6. Some of my latest research showing what might be driving the negative relationship between Facebook use and overall GPA.
  7. Ideas for future research projects (check it out, graduate students!).
