The Internet at School

Lee Rainie, Pew, Aug 02, 2005

The latest Pew study is all over the internet. The main news is that "Teen use of the internet at school has grown 45% since 2000" and that they are more likely to use instant messaging than email. Though the telephone survey is of American teens only, it is usually repeated (for example here) without that qualification. One suspects it also favours broadband users (as the modem users will give the surveyers nothing but a busy signal) and therefore instant messaging users (as instant messaging works much better with always-on access).
