Digital Student Further Education Report - Sept 2015

Colleges need to engage staff, learners and employers in
a constructive dialogue to define expectations of technology
use. We recommend using a range of methods to involve
them and encourage a variety of voices to be heard. In
particular, facilitate closer working with employers – they
can help determine expenditure, use of technology and
assessment. The aim is to ensure that learners’ technology
use is going to prepare them for employment and
enhance their lifelong employability.

thibault philippette's curator insight, October 10, 2015 4:21 AM

"Well, the point to key challenges is obviously positive (participation, engagement) but the report is in the 'hype' of current general discourses: engage learners (all? how?) in innovative ways (what do you mean by 'innovation'? technology means innovation?)" A good start... to discuss!

The National Digital Skills Framework which we are building is not intended to be an overly formal document with huge levels of complexity, but rather a living document that adapts and evolves to suit all of our needs and which seeks to keep as up to date as possible with technologies and the related human skills. It is intended to be community-owned, building on the excellent work of others in the whole area of digital literacies, skills & training, and professional development.

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.

Social media, digital presence and hen harriers

Social media, digital presence and hen harriers | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it
Who I am in my personal life informs who am in my professional life, and that will be true for most people. This is often expressed in my work life by hearing colleagues tell me about what their kids are doing at school with the curriculum or technology. Personal informs “professional” and vice versa. Now, with social media, we get to choose how we express and how much we express about these facets of our lives. For me, I have chosen not to keep separate accounts, after all I am the same person whether I am running a workshop on digital leadership or a hiding under a bush photographing a rare bird or trying to identify a warbler.

There is no question that UK higher education (HE) is changing. Conversations and essays about the importance of the student experience abound, but we can see it simply by looking at the different channels and evolving nature of student-staff interactions. 
Anthony Beal's insight:

Comment on this blog, by Simon Thomson, recognising the high quality social connectivity many UK libraries have with their customers:

"...I think other university service areas could learn a lot from their libraries. They know how to connect with people & they know they must be in the same spaces as their customer base in order to do that."
