As I mentioned yesterday, I surveyed my freshmen for the details on how comfortable they really are with different Apple devices and how reliable their access to wifi is. I think the results are pretty interesting, and just so you know I have 69 freshmen.
Comfort with Apple devices like iPods, iPhones and iPads:
64% very comfortable 32% somewhat comfortable 4% not at all comfortable
Comfort with MacBooks or desktops:
13% very comfortable 42% somewhat comfortable 45% not at all comfortable
Reliable access to wifi
75% have it all the time 22% nearly always have access 3% have it none of the time
First of all, I think it's pretty interesting that so many of them are comfortable with Apple devices, but few are comfortable with Apple computers. I think the experience with mobile devices will give them a huge step up when learning about their new MacAirs. Additionally, I am very grateful that only two of my freshmen don't have easy access to internet at home. Yup, that's it! That will save me a lot of stress when accommodating for lack of access.
All this is just more evidence that this is a really, really great place to work with a lot of amazing things going on.
