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)?

Digital Literacy Is the Key to the Future, But We Still Don't Know What It Means | WIRED

Digital Literacy Is the Key to the Future, But We Still Don't Know What It Means | WIRED | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it
Moving beyond improving career prospects, the conversation then turned repeatedly to the idea that literacy means more than using digital technology as a means of consuming things other people make. Digital literacy, Smith said, also is about “how to make it do what you want.” Or as Geshner put it: “Are you an iPad or are you a laptop? An iPad is designed for consumption.” Literacy, as he described it, means moving beyond a passive relationship with technology. “When you get down to coding, you’re creating your own tools.”

10 Social Media Skills for 21st Century Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Sarah Davies, head of change – student experience, Jisc


There’s been a marked increase over the last two or three years in the level of interest in digital literacies among professional services staff and institutional managers. While ALT members have been stressing the importance of digital issues in teaching and learning for a long time, there seems to be a more general understanding now that digital literacies can transform academic and institutional life...

Digital Literacy Is the Key to the Future, But We Still Don't Know What It Means | WIRED

Digital Literacy Is the Key to the Future, But We Still Don't Know What It Means | WIRED | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

...For some, it does. It’s become commonplace to argue that everyone is better off learning at least basic programming skills—that coding itself is the new, necessary literacy. We’ve seen online courses, games, new programming languages, and even children’s books pushing kids and their parents in this direction.

 

But “learning to code” is an exceedingly broad concept, and one which without more specifics risks oversimplifying conversations about what digital literacy really means. And how digital literacy is defined is important. This isn’t just about filling Silicon Valley jobs. It’s about educators, policy makers, and parents understanding how to give the rising generations of digital natives the tools they need to define the future of technology for themselves...

UCISA 2014 Survey of Digital capabilities: embedding and support

The UCISA User Skills Group  are pleased to launch the first of what we plan to be a biennial survey of the UK HE sector, focusing on what have variously been called digital capabilities, digital literacies or digital competencies.

This survey, and those to come, will start to describe how institutions are developing people to perform efficiently and effectively in a digital environment.  It will complement the technology enhanced learning (TEL) survey that the UCISA Academic Skills Group runs, but will look at broader digital capabilities instead of TEL software and approaches.
