High school and college students are using social media to make educational and career connections. In ranking the impact of various media on their education, they rank Internet as most important, printed books second, TV third (24% thought it was significant), and other media (including newspapers) below. Survey students said laptops were the top item used in class for note-taking (followed by phones, cameras, audio records, tablets and camcorders).
