Teens and Technology Usage in the Educational Environment (2009), a from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), found that students are using technology to access their grades and class assignments online and are using the Internet to help with homework.

While 65% of teens report technology is used by teachers in the class, only 41% report spending time in a computer class or lab. Teens attending public and private schools report that their homework assignments require access to technology once they leave the school grounds.
