Education has been significantly transformed by the Internet. The Pew Internet & American Life Project examines how the rise of online communication has affected the way students are taught and academic research is conducted, as well as its use in school administration and other education-oriented functions. The project’s knowledge about educational issues and the Internet is gathered through public opinion polling, online surveys and other research methods.
Recent topics explored by the Pew Internet & American Life Project include college students’ Internet use; the so-called “digital disconnect” between Web-savvy students and their schools; and ways in which students use online resources to do their homework. The data are a useful tool for journalists, academic researchers, school administrators and other interested parties who want to know more about the ways that the Internet is used in education.
The Pew Internet & American Life Project is an initiative of the Pew Research Center, a Pew subsidiary based in Washington, D.C. For more information about how the Internet is being used by students and educators, visit the Pew Internet & American Life Project Web site.
