Web 2.0 Tools and Techniques <ul><li>Who is using what in the academic world? </li></ul><ul><li>Research published last autumn by JISC into the attitudes of 16-18 year olds across the UK who are hoping to go to university showed that they are ‘digital natives’ who use social networking sites regularly and are quickly able to perceive the potential benefits and limitations of new technologies in their social and academic lives, when presented with examples of their use. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Use of the Internet is the norm for these young people, with 76% having accessed the Internet from their bedrooms, nearly two-thirds using social networking sites ‘regularly’ and 84% agreeing with the statement that they ‘like to keep up-to-date with new technology and use it as much as possible both for study and in my free time’. </li></ul><ul><li>On the other hand – among the over-18s in a recent survey at Oxford University, the top three uses were wikis and Wikipedia; blogs; and communication tools such as MSN Messenger and discussion forums. </li></ul><ul><li>Social bookmarking; social networking and image and video sharing were low in their usage patterns. </li></ul>06/21/10 Mike Moran
