This presentation will focus on how new generation tertiary education students interact in a digital age. It will discuss how they adapt and customise their learning and personalise their interactions to suit their needs. It will argue that students need to acquire a range of literacies to successfully personalise their learning and social environments. New generation tertiary education students are characterised by having a rapport or relationship with technology and they have an inherent need to express themselves through multiple avenues which utilise user-generated content. User-generated content includes artefacts created by the student that are uploaded to the internet for sharing with other people. Knowledge acquisition now focuses on networks and ecologies, and knowledge now requires literacies in networking (Siemens, 2006). In addition, our learning is increasingly mobile as we move through a wider range of spaces. We now expect to be able to work, learn, and study whenever and wherever we want (Johnson, et al, 2012).
