Emerging themes on developing digital literacies

  1. 1. Project Video Updates While we are waiting to start please have a look at the Institutional videos from the Developing Digital Literacies projects visit http://bit.ly/jiscdlprogvideos to hear about how they are implementing digital literacies at a strategic levelIn particular updates from two FE Colleges Coleg Llandrillo –  Worcester College of TechnologyPADDLE Project http://bit.ly/LN2hIo WORDLE Project http://bit.ly/LKOhe8
  2. 2. #jiscdiglitEmerging Themes onDeveloping Digital LiteraciesAndrew Comrie (Digital Literacies CriticalFriend) and Paul Bailey, JISC ProgrammeManager
  3. 3. What does the term “Digital Literacy” mean to you? Student Academic StaffFrom Mark Kerrigan, University of Greenwich, Baseline Survey 2012
  4. 4. A definition of digital literacy? We‟re working with colleges and universities to embed core digital skills into the curriculum. By digital literacy we mean those capabilities which fit an individual for living, learning and working in a digital society: for example, the skills to use digital tools to undertake academic research, writing and critical thinking; as part of personal development planning; and as a way of showcasing achievements.
  5. 5. Developing Digital Literacies ProgrammeA sector-wide programmepromoting the developmentof coherent, inclusive andholistic institutionalstrategies andorganisational approachesfor developing digitalliteracies for staff andstudents in UK further andhigher education.
  6. 6. Baseline Review Summary of the projects http://bit.ly/JiUV0m and professional association baseline reports http://bit.ly/KWFJUo Looked at – Policy and strategy – Support and professional services – Practices – Developing capability – Cultures and attitudes
  7. 7. BYO TechnologiesHow many personal technologies (i.e. Smart phone, laptop, ipad, etc) do you take to work?A. NoneB. OneC. TwoD. ThreeE. Four or more
  8. 8. BYO Technologies– Learners are relying increasingly on the use of their own technology for study and for assessment. (PADDLE http://jiscpaddleproject.wordpress.com/ )– Learners are sometimes „bypassing‟ college technology in order to use technology which they are more comfortable with, have personal control of and which is, possibly, more advanced.– This raises issues about provision of public wifi for learners and wifi access to college networks.– This raises the issue of the barriers to learning faced by the technology „have nots‟.
  9. 9. BYO TechnologiesBring your own technologies/use of social media “Learners are relying increasingly on the use of their own technology for study and for assessment” “Tutors have mixed opinions as regards using external social media against social media designed specifically for educational use”Paddle Project, Coleg Llandrillo
  10. 10. BYO Technologies BYOD/BYOS  Specialised system/application Mobile device and apps  Based around and integrated into a complex practice Web browser and services  e.g. VLE, SRS, CAD/CAM, Profile and preferences SPSS, nVivo, design Ease of adoption/use environments, Endnote... Generic, reconfigurable  Specialised, non-reconfigurable Shared, open, social  Steep learning curve Personal/social identity  Professional/academic identity Build your own Underlying data, information, standards
  11. 11. Digitally literate senior managersDo you have any examples of senior managers taking a strategic approach to using technology (digital literacies)?Type you examples in the chat box
  12. 12. Digitally literate senior managers What does a digitally literate senior manager need to know? – Often SMs are limited in their use of technologies in their own jobs. (e.g. email, MS WORD, Excel, Powerpoint) – Less about skills and more about „know-how‟ to write strategy and policy and provide leadership and direction. – Less about skills development and more about keeping up-to-date with developments, looking outside the College, participating with organisations such as JISC/ RSC
  13. 13. Developing staff digital literaciesHow would you rate your digital literacies?A. One of the most digitally literate in the collegeB. Better than my studentsC. I can only do what I need to doD. I don‟t use technologyE. Other (type in chat)
  14. 14. Developing staff digital literacies Paddle checklist  I manage my online identity and reputation  I am aware of e-safety issues  I express myself creatively, professionally or academically in a range of media  I review the appropriateness of different technologies and make informed choices about their use in the curriculum  I have input to the design of the curriculum, including choice of technologies  I participate in digital networks focused on pedagogy/teaching technique  I am aware of digital rights and responsibilities  I participate in digital networks focused on my subject area
  15. 15. Developing staff digital literacies Examples in Colleges – Developing Accredited Professional Development Units for different types of Staff ( Library/ILT/Personal Tutors/Teachers) offered as part of Staff CPD) e.g. Worcester College of technology has 1 unit approved.

  17. 17. Developing Student Digital Literacies– Student perception of their digital literacy skills and abilities are not necessarily matched with the reality. (WORDLE and PADDLE)– Developing accredited digital literacy Units for students ( FE and HE students ) that can be embedded into course structures or offered in a supported environment such as library resource centre/study centre Worcester College of Technology (http://bradyx.pbworks.com/w/page/52526661/Appro ved%20OCN%20Units
  18. 18. Developing student digital literacies “students over-estimate their own digital capabilities” In FE, it was identified that students need the following support if they are to flourish: – diagnosis of ICT skills on entry to their course – support and progression throughout their course, in all of ICT skills, information skills, – media skills and general study skills – digital experiences integrated into curriculum activities and assessments
  19. 19. Students as partners and pioneersAre your students involved in any of theseA. Mentoring/supporting staff to develop digital literacy skillsB. Having a say in how digital literacy skills are developed on their coursesC. Engaged in developing resources (learning materials, apps, etc.)D.
