What I learned about ‘The Power of Digital’ #digifest16

What I learned about ‘The Power of Digital’ #digifest16 | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it
In a #TBT moment I realised it’s been a month since I volunteered to go to Digifest 2016, so in the style of reflective practice I thought I’d revisit my notes and do a retrospective write up about the day. Digifest is a 2 day technology in teaching and learning showcase run by JISC held…

Social media in education: a student perspective | Jisc

Social media in education: a student perspective | Jisc | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it
We recently launched a call to find 50 of the most influential HE professionals on social media. We've been hearing from all kinds of academics and lecturers about the ways in which they use social media to generate change or improve things in their institutions - but what do the students think? We took the opportunity to speak to some students taking part in Jisc's Summer of Student Innovation to find out.
Anthony Beal's insight:

Interesting that there seems to be more use, by some students, of Facebook rather than Twitter for studying. One student talks about setting up revision groups on Facebook and crowdsourcing answers to past exam papers.

 

 Lectures are praised for making the effort to go on social media courses. One student commented how useful it is when her lecturer uses Twitter hash tags to pass on information regarding courses and modules. This includes links to journals and academic papers.

FE and Skills study | Jisc Digital Student | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

The FE and Skills Study will conduct desk research and consultation with students and other stakeholders, in order to extend the previous HE investigations to further education. The project will build on the findings and methods of the HE study in order to assess the extent to which those findings are relevant and applicable to the FE and skills sector.

 

The two main investigation questions are:

 

What do learners WANT (expectations)?
What do learners NEED to succeed (experiences)?

Developing students' digital literacy | Jisc | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

Even today’s students need support with some areas of digital practice, particularly in an academic context, so it’s important to make sure that these needs are met.

 

While employability is an obvious driver, the potential for developing students that can learn and thrive in a digital society is being recognised as a key role for universities and colleges.
