“A SECONDARY school in York is set to become the first in the city to give all of its pupils an iPad.”

I wonder what they will make of education at York Uni when they get here in a couple of years’ time?

“Eight out of ten freshers have smartphones”

According to UCAS stats (actually this years’ surveys from depts at York Uni show the figure here to be closer to 90%). What does this mean for the way that we market our courses and interact with students when they get here.
