The Mobile Phone: A Near-Ubiquitous Tool for Information-Seeking and Communication in the U.S.

According to a Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project national survey, “Americans and Their Cell Phones” (August 15, 2011), mobile telephones have become a near-ubiquitous tool for information seeking and communicating in the United States.

The survey shows that 83% of American adults own some kind of cell phone and that these devices have an impact on many aspects of their owners’ daily lives.

  1. Along the same lines – At Temple Law, we are going to place QR codes that correspond to a specific resource (e.g., USCA, ALR, etc.) at the location where that resource is located. That QR code will then link up to a video clip which will introduce the resource to the student. Frequency of use can be tracked by real-time stats.

    If this pilot project takes off, I’ll let you know more =).
