Abstract
Focusing on the difference in the use of mobile media between urban and rural middle school students in the information age, this study investigates the students in four middle schools in Chongqing to penetrate their attitude, motivation of smart-phone use and discusses the impact of smart-phone on the knowledge gap between them. The statistical results show they have the similar attitude and motivation for the use of smart-phone. But there is a great disparity in utilization efficiency of smart-phone media between them. Urban middle school students update their knowledge faster and have wider span of knowledge. So the conclusion is that the knowledge gap between urban and rural middle school students was not narrowed by the use of smart-phone.
