Topic: Undergraduates' Use of Time

10-second review: 539 undergraduates. “Students devoted more mean hours per day to the Internet (2.47 hours) than academic reading (2.17 hours), television viewing (1.93 hours), or recreational reading (1.14 hours).

Title: “The impact of Internet and Television Use on the Reading Habits and Practices of College Students.” K Mokhtari, CA Reicard and A Gardner. Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy, 52 (17), 609-619, 2009.

Comment: That’s almost 8 hours a day spent with the Internet, TV and Academic and recreational reading. That’s 3 ½ hours of reading a day. Interesting. RayS.
