Sprint Joins University of Notre Dame for Groundbreaking, 3-year Study on Students’ Wireless and Social Networking Habits

From Sprint

The comments and questions have been floating about for years: “Kids these days don’t talk anymore. They only text.” “Don’t college kids have any shame? They’ll spill their guts on Facebook before talking to a real-live person.” Are these claims true? Or does mobile technology actually help students learn to better express themselves and ultimately enhance their face-to-face interactions?

Such questions will be studied and answered during a pioneering, three-year study by The Wireless Institute, the University of Notre Dame’s preeminent research center aimed at developing innovations and educating students in wireless technology, economics and regulatory policy. Sprint (NYSE: S) will help The Wireless Institute by offering 200 devices and two years of service for the students who volunteer for the study, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
