  • Introduction
  • The 21st Century Cliché:net generation, millennial, digital native, grown-up digital, 21st century learner, etc, etc
  • Questioning the cliché …Are students connected?Are they connected to their learning?Are their classes connected to them?
  • Evolution of the Student Learning Environment Survey (SLES)ECAR (Educause Center for Applied Research)since 2004 – focus on information technologiessignificant longitudinal data
  • Evolution of the Student Learning Environment Survey (SLES)U of L SLESannual since 2009focus on the “Learning Environment” not the “Learning Technologies”all undergraduate students (main and satellite campuses)
  • Evolution of the Student Learning Environment Survey (SLES)Evolving/Adaptive/Responsive

  • Confidence n= 1300-1400/a (~ 20% return) at α = 0.05; +/- 2%Some Results …
  • “Are students connected?”in 200995% with “high-speed” internet at “home”
  • “Are students connected?”in 2009only 20% own a “smartphone” but 80% have a “mp3 player”
  • “Are students connected?”by 201190% own an internet capable “mobile device” (smartphone, tablet, etc) – a 350% increase since 2011
  • “Are students connected?”by 201190% own an internet capable “mobile device” (smartphone, tablet, etc) – a 350% increase since 201197% own a laptop computer (90% in 2011)

  • “Are students connected?”ref: ECAR 2012 (p. 13) - device ownership and use for course work
  • “Are students connected to their learning?”Laptop / Mobile Device use in classtaking notes, accessing resources, accessing the LMS, collaborating (75-90%)… and “other” activities (70%)
