Results of a technology ownership and use survey among undergraduates revealed high ownership and use and proficiency in some educational applications and not others. Research has shown that students in these age groups are increasing their ownership of computers and wireless devices and using them for emailing, instant messaging, browsing the Internet, playing computer games, talking with friends, and listening to music. Results of this study will have an impact on the design of a new instructional technology course that is currently being designed for pre-service teachers.
