Understanding emerging digital behaviours and their impact


Published on

Understanding how students behave online,
how their 'digital literacies' manifest and how
they are developing online strategies around
information seeking and collaboration is key
to how institutions support learning. Based on
the ongoing work of the Digital Visitors &
Residents project this session will explore the various 'modes of engagement' students operate in online for their learning and their perceptions of credibility in the digital environment.

  • This is what you could call a ‘shell definition’ – it allows for expansion within your own context; for considering what are the key digital literacies in your university, college, or discipline or service context.The definition highlights why digital literacies are important – they are necessary for students to make the most of their learning opportunities and to maximise their employability when they leave.
  • Students are big users of tech to organise their complex lives - and get very frustrated if things get in the way of this - eg multiple logins, lack of connectivity, stuff that won't work on mobile.Students do reliably seem to be bigger users of mobile than staff.  'Checking against' what was sanctioned or deemed 'appropriate' by lecturerswas described by all students in this study. While they remain so focused on theexpectations of their tutors, it is important that students receive consistent messages about,for example, online collaborations, the value of wikipedia, the use of facebook to exchangecourse notes, and the recording of lectures.
  • The specific prompts to audit from the documentation supplied by Jisc are the first 6 points.To add depth to this, most projects also wanted to do something to understand more about the student digital learning experience.Helps you to understand where you are, and provides evidence of where more work may be needed.For findings, see the baseline reports page on the Design Studio at http://jiscdesignstudio.pbworks.com/w/page/46422098/Baselining%20digital%20literacy%20provision

    17. 17. “If the lecturer‟s good at technology then we‟ll have technology based learning activities, more materials in the course etc.” “But technology use is patchy.” “The VLE is mostly a repository for staff lecture notes (Slides).” “The first thing we do for a module is set up a FB group” “VLE is for slides and readings lists – the discussions are too hard to find, we chat in
    18. 18. Arguments in favour of the lecture as a mode of learning describe the „exciting, uplifting, even inspirational lectures which linger in the memory’ (Jones, 2007), and it has been argued that even a commonplace lecture carries with it a „certain atmosphere‟. The immediacy and the engagement, as a community of learners, with a unique performance „rooted in the oral tradition‟ (Jones, 2007) cannot be replicated with a recorded lecture. Exeter Case Study:
    19. 19. What does this mean in the context of Lecture capture? Poor Lectures vs Good Lectures? What is the impact of everything, everywhere being recorded? How do we use the „objects‟? What is the impact on learning? Flipped vs Discussion at Scale?
