E-learning in university: the digital natives are restless

E-learning in university: the digital natives are restless | digital natives | Scoop.it

An interesting report released last week on the “State of E-Learning in Canadian Universities” casts some doubt on the conventional thinking surrounding how university students perceive e-learning and blended learning (a mix of class-based learning and electronic resources)....

Librarians move to fill void for 'digital natives'

Librarians move to fill void for 'digital natives' | digital natives | Scoop.it
The University of Western Ontario - Western provides the best student experience among Canada's leading research-intensive universities.

 

University-age students today are sometimes referred to as ‘digital natives’ – a group of people who have grown up with the Internet. But many young people are unsure of how to use computers and the Internet beyond social media or web-browsing purposes. Librarians are now helping students fill this digital void.

 

Libraries are looking to teach students how to optimize research and many now offer workshops on how to make sense of the information they find.  Librarians provide instruction on how to search efficiently within academic databases, using simple tricks such as adding brackets and asterisks to narrow down searches.

 

Nowadays, it’s important to recognize not all students are tech-savvy and for libraries to have support services for students through liaison librarians. These librarians spend time in research-intensive classes introducing students to the library resources available to them.

So-Called "Digital Natives" Not Media Savvy, New Study Shows | ReadWrite.com | digital natives | Scoop.it

"In Google we trust." That may very well be the motto of today's young online users, a demographic group often dubbed the "digital natives" due their apparent tech-savvy. Having been born into a world where personal computers were not a revolution, but merely existed alongside air conditioning, microwaves and other appliances, there has been (a perhaps misguided) perception that the young are more digitally in-tune with the ways of the Web than others.

 

That may not be true, as it turns out. A new study coming out of Northwestern University, discovered that college students have a decided lack of Web savvy, especially when it comes to search engines and the ability to determine the credibility of search results. Apparently, the students favor search engine rankings above all other factors. The only thing that matters is that something is the top search result, not that it's legit.
