The Pearson Foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to make a difference by promoting literacy, learning, and great teaching, has put together the results of a survey about the usage of tablets amongst high school and college students.

It’s a fascinating report, but some of the highlights:

1. Tablet ownership among college and college-bound students has more than tripled from last year.

2. The same students view the tablet as an educational tool as much as an entertainment tool.

3. The majority of students prefer to read digital books to physical.

Here we have yet more proof that the future looks bright for the creators of eBooks. So… keep at it!
