no not really apples v oranges, the point is that print still has its place (which we may be agreeing on).
in fact 33% of those surveyed in the article you posted still PREFER print to digital (10% undecided?)
my guess is that most of those people obviously are from the 75% that don't own tabs/readers
interesting to me that 10% of those owning tablets feel that they are NOT valuable for education.
makes you wonder why those college students still own them.
but the real point underlying all of this, is not what the student PREFERS, but what fosters the best outcomes.
the survey was curiously silent on that question ...
someone was lamenting the death of Britannica in print, noting it as another example of the death of juried contemporaneous writing.
personally not sure that's a good or bad thing (they thought it was bad) but interesting.
apples with oranges ...
