Abstract

Indonesia has recognized the growing demand for information technology, with the
most rapid adoption of this technology being amongst its young people. Within the
perspective of a balanced knowledge information society, the adoption of technology
is crucial for improving social development in developing countries and is considered a
particularly important tool in education. The education sector is well-placed to harness
the potential of ICT for the millennial generation in these societies. Based on a survey of
students enrolled in a university in Jakarta, this study attempts to identify the learning
and development opportunities available through digital technology by exploring both
how university students in Indonesia use this technology, and how they experience and
perceive the benefits of digital learning. In particular, we examine how their access to and
use of technology is associated with their digital literacy and their perceived usefulness of
ICT. In general, Indonesian university students are actively engaged in a number of diverse
activities online, including educational activities, which in turn result in increased online
learning outcomes. A better understanding of the role of digital literacy and learning
environments and effective use of technology for learning can provide important insights
into education and technology use in Indonesia and similar contexts.
