Student tech 10_12 Student tech 10_12 Presentation Transcript

  • Students have a say in how they want touse technology to support their learningDr Michael SankeyDirector, Learning Environments and MediaProfessor Belinda TynanPVC Learning, Teaching and Quality
  • Introduction The evolving opportunities technological change provides requires the frequent evolution of services to facilitate engaged learning. The resources and costs involved need to be carefully weighed up against the potential benefits of the affordances. To provide an evidence-based approach to planning USQ recently conducted a multidimensional survey to understand how students’ use and expectations of technologies for both life and study. The technologies surveyed included, institutional systems (email, LMS), Web2.0 technologies (social networking, shared spaces) and personal devices. This presentation provides some initial findings and reflects on some implications for emerging learning environments for ‘todays’ student.
  • Social networking
  • Some assumptions  Lots of students use Facebook, Twitter, iPhones etc., so they will want to use it for their studies.  We build it (engaging stuff) and they will come  Staff now all have iPads so the students must also want to be using them  New technologies can do a better job than some more traditional approaches Image accessed from: https://schoolpsych-ipad.wikispaces.com/
  • Method  2010 Macquarie, UWS & UTS jointly ran the Student Experience of Technology in Universities Survey  Online survey open for 3 weeks  126 multi-choice questions based on 5 point likert scale,  4 open ended response questions  5 x $50 Amazon vouchers up for grabs  Email sent to all students + 2 reminders + on Student Portal  1181 valid responses  Focus group (yet to be held) 700+ willing to participate (ideas, how to do this many)Gosper, M., Malfroy, J., McKenzie, J., & Ranking, J.

  • Conclusion Lots of students use Twitter, Facebook, etc., so they will want to use it for their studies  Yes quite a few do, but only a few are interested in using them for study We build it (engaging stuff) and they will come  That is true in relation to the use of LMS and online conferencing, vod/pod casting and particularly for the self testing of knowledge Staff now all have iPads so the students must also want to be using them  Students are mostly using laptops for study New technologies can do a better job than some more traditional approaches  To some degree we are clearly seeing a trend to using more online technologies
