  3. 3. photo credit: Mike Cogh via Photopin cc! Part of an Educational Strategy? “our students will be equipped to live, thrive, learn, work, collaborate, influence and lead in the increasingly digital and connected world” Prof Hugh Davis, Director CITE, University of Southampton

  7. 7. Digital literacies are the skills needed to live, learn work, collaborate, influence and lead in the virtual digital world We are preparing students for jobs that don’t yet exist, using work- practices we don’t yet know, supported by tools not yet invented.
  8. 8. “DIGITAL LITERACY DEFINES THOSE CAPABILITIES which fit an individual for living, learning and working in a digital society” JISC, 2009
  9. 9. Photo credit: Rob Shenk via photopin cc What’s wrong with VLE’s? ! Don’t encourage learners to take responsibility for their own learning, tools or digital literacy Outdated view of teaching as “push” Teacher at the centre not the student or the network Not integrated with tools & environments for education Closed to networked learning Lock you in
  10. 10. The VLE is Dead - long live the PLE
  11. 11. An aside on the “Digital Natives” argument Learning has not changed Expectations of how it should be done has Students are familiar with Facebook but not how to use tech for education Better distinction: ‘Digital Visitors & Residents’ (Le Cornu & White, 2009)

  17. 17. photo credit: blakespot via photopin cc HIGH EXPECTATIONS 87% COLLEGE STUDENTS CONSIDER TECHNOLOGY WHEN DECIDING ON WHICH UNIVERSITY 92% HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS SAID TECHNOLOGY IS KEY DIFFERENTIATOR (21ST CENTURY CAMPUS REPORT)
  18. 18. CHALLENGES?
  19. 19. POLICY & SECURITY Most of the time people only want access to the internet (including University intranet sites) When accessing university systems we need a password challenge and single sign on Already in place: Acceptable use; Virus protection Password protection of devices Problem is they are not enforceable - its a social thing!
  20. 20. ADDRESSING SECURITY CONCERNS photo credit: JohnGoode via photopin cc Require users to register every device Utilise two-factor authentication Provide anti-virus/malware software Scanning devices Educating students and staff Verifiying users’ understanding Locking down core network Relying on virtualisation and internal cloud CDWG, Bring Your own Device, “Adapting the Flood of Personal mobile computing accessing campus networks”
  21. 21. Some issues Universities must decide What devices will we support? How will we support them? Who will pay for software/apps? Access to University systems? If the Uni supplies it, who owns it (eg Apple ID’s?) Letting go of control but still ensuring reliable and secure systems - tricky balance
  22. 22. Well supported BYOD environment aligned to university strategies offers benefits: Enables technology rich classrooms Inititates new ways of learning Increases student engagement
  23. 23. Thank you Develop digital literacies for staff and students Have clear, flexible policies and strategy in place Provide learning experiences that encourage DL Ensure students have a ‘real world’ learning environment Summary:
