More Infographics To Think About: Part 2

There are a lot of great infographics out there about technology and education, despite the concerns and issues that some have identified with education-based infographics.  Here are a few more to review and think about.

These two infographics look at the use of technology by college students.  The "2012 Students and Technology" infographic is based on an annual survey of undergraduate students by EDUCAUSE and presents information on student technology ownership and student uses of technology in their college experiences.
