If you are a college administrator, please take note. The survey result below means (among other things) you should consider hiring more profs with 21st century digital literacy skills so they can share those skills with students. (Yes, this is also a shameless, self-promotional plug!)

…more than half of all students (56 percent) said they wished they had taken more computer and technology classes [as undergraduate students.]

Source: “Chasing the American Dream: Recent College Graduates and the Great Recession,” Heldrich Center for Workforce Development. Survey was “a nationally representative sample of 444 recent college graduates from the class of 2006 through 2011, with a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.”
