Japanese students' experience of ICT and other technology prior to university: A survey

Abstract

It has been observed that many students seemingly lack information and communication technology (ICT) skills when entering university. is paper looks at the experience young Japanese people have had of using technology, in particular ICT, prior to entering university. e data was collected by means of a questionnaire (N = ) and found that students have engaged with numerous technologies in a large variety of situations. e aim is to inform teachers, learning advisors and universities (perhaps change this to “university administrators”) of the practicalities of using ICT in class and how to manage technology within curricula; a variety of suggestions are made.
