In looking through the key findings from the latest ECAR national survey 
of student I find some tidbits from the "Key Findings" document that 
might be of interest.

http://www.educause.edu/Resources/ECARStudyofUndergraduateStuden/217333

Participants:
36,950 respondents, U.S. four-year institutions (34% freshmen and 42% 
seniors), majority of respondents are under 25 years old (78%) and go to 
school full time (86%). Responses are also somewhat biased toward 
doctoral institutions (56%), larger institutions (72% in institutions 
that enroll more than 8,000 students), and public institutions (75%). 
Also, 12% of responses from two-year colleges of any class.

Ownership:
45.9% desktops
83.8% laptops
13% netbooks
62.7% internet capable handheld device
3.1% dedicated ereader device

Information literacy
81% consider themselves expert or very skilled in searching the Internet 
effectively and efficiently
57% rate ability to evaluate the reliability and credibility of online 
information as expert or very skilled
48% rated their understanding of related ethical and legal issues as 
expert or very skilled

IT activities for school work or recreation
94% use library website for school, work, or recreation
over 33% use library website several times a week or more
over 90% respondents reported using presentation software and course or 
learning management systems
over 85% using spreadsheets.
42% contributing videos to video sites
40% updating wikis
36% contributing to blogs
25% playing online multi user games
25% using social bookmarking sites

Communication
90% text messaging and social networking (and using them daily)
40% VoIP

Numbers are up for owners, frequent users, infrequent users, and 
planning to purchase for internet use of handheld devices

Growth in number of users of Facebook/MySpace, etc by age (Note 
particularly the growth in numbers of older students):

2007
90.1% 18-24 year olds
57.6% 25-29 " "
30.4% 30-39 " "
17.7% 40-49 " "
10.3% 50+ " "

2010
94.1% 18-24 year olds
85.7% 25-29 " "
81.5% 30-39 " "
69.2% 40-49 " "
58.1% 50+ " "

Top two uses:
“Stay in touch with friends” (96%) and “Share photos, music, videos, or 
other work” (72%).

Course use of IT
majorities using library website, presentation software, LMS
25% using ebooks
 >20% using course lecture podcasts or videos
 >20% using iClickers

LMS use:
66.5% use for at least some courses
majority have a positive reaction to LMS, but the number of negative 
reactions has grown somewhat as more are using
Also "respondents’ perception about institutional IT service regarding 
coursework availability is related to their CMS experience. Students 
reporting a positive or very positive experience using a CMS were much 
more likely to agree about IT availability than those reporting a 
negative or very negative experience."

Faculty use of IT:
"Other research has found that higher education instructors are a bit 
behind the curve when it comes to implementing IT in the classroom. The 
Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) surveyed approximately 4,600 
faculty members at 50 U.S. colleges and universities in the spring of 
2009 and found that overwhelming majorities of faculty were not using IT 
tools such as collaborative editing software, blogs, plagiarism 
detection tools, student response systems, or video 
games/simulations/virtual worlds. The only technology FSSE reported 
faculty using extensively was course management systems.7 Despite 
numerous experiments with leading-edge teaching technologies on campuses 
around the country, the FSSE findings suggest that many instructors 
continue to teach using old-school, lecture-based instruction."
...
"Questions include whether respondents’ instructors use IT effectively 
in their courses (47% this year), whether they have adequate IT skills 
for carrying out course instruction (49% this year), and whether they 
provide students with adequate training for IT in their courses (38% 
this year).
When asked to respond to the statement “I skip classes when materials 
from course lectures are available online” on a scale of strongly 
disagree, disagree, neutral, agree, and strongly agree, nearly 
two-thirds (64%) told us that they disagree or strongly disagree with 
the statement."
