The Web and College Student Learning in Informal Contexts (Review of Literature)

  1. The Web &collegestudentlearning ininformalcontexts 2013.01.31
  2. #web2lit #dalton13@paulgordonbrown
  3. In this presentation... I am interested in thelearning and development of undergraduate college students in informal contexts most often encountered by student affairs professionals.
  4. In other words... What literature is out there to inform student affairsprofessionals on how to use the Web/social media to engage college students?
  5. So what do I mean byIn/formallearning ?
  6. Formal learning is whatoccurs in the classroom andis answerable to a set ofregulations and traditionaleducational paradigms. Ittypically involves an agent(often a teacher) that directswhat will be learned and howit will be learned.Greenhow, C., & Robelia, B. (2009, June). Informal learning and identity formation in online social networks. Learning Media and Technology, 34(2), 119-140. doi:  10.1080/17439880902923580
  7. Informal learning is taken on voluntarily, driven by the learner, and often in a multi- dimensional social-mediated way that motivates one towards further learning.Greenhow, C., & Robelia, B. (2009, June). Informal learning and identity formation in online social networks. Learning Media and Technology, 34(2), 119-140. doi:  10.1080/17439880902923580Bull, G., Thompson, A., Searson, M., Garofalo, J., Park, J., Young, C., & Lee, J. (2008). Connecting informal and formal learning: Experiences in the age of participatory media. Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education, 8(2), 100-107.National Science Foundation. (2006). Informal science education program solicitation (NSF 06-520). Retrieved from www.nsf.gov/pubs/2006/nsf06520/nsf06520.htm
  8. We are going to focus onInformallearning
  9. CAVEAT It is hard to separate informal from formal learning in Web environments, theseconcepts can blur and are grey. (get it ;)
  10. ADDITIONALLY I am more concerned with informal learning as itoccurs in traditional student affairs work as opposed tostudents crafting their own education on the Web.
