Where In The World Do The Most Young People Use Technology? - Edudemic | Fife College Social Media Exchange | Scoop.it
At first, I figured that the results of this study would be pretty obvious. First world countries with large populations and higher birth rates would be at the top of the list.
Martin Laidlaw Fife College's insight:

Very interesting infographic about digital natives. I am not sure of what this actualy means for learning and education except my initial instinct is that a huge CPD upgrade for teaching staff is required. Moreover learning and education will continue to expand as an online interactive option..see MOOC's, Future learn and Coursera.

Developing digital literacy: trial and error? | Jisc

Developing digital literacy: trial and error? | Jisc | Fife College Social Media Exchange | Scoop.it
A Jisc study has found that learners develop a variety of digital literacies often through a social trial-and-error process, without the direct support or advice of their educational institutions.
Martin Laidlaw Fife College's insight:

This reflects my own digital learning experience...trial and error and actually using product to assess which meets my own needs. The trouble is of course there is always that other product that seems a little slicker and smoother. The key is to find one you like and stick with it and become an expert.

Is this the new learning revolution? This is the UK version of MOOC's and it is owned by Open univesity so the quality is going to be good. I have already completed a MOOC and will probably try anotherthrough future learn.

why don't we try to put a course up aimed at fife on line learners?

Are You Ready for the Post-College SAT?

Are You Ready for the Post-College SAT? | Fife College Social Media Exchange | Scoop.it
Next spring, seniors at about 200 U.S. colleges will take a new test that could prove more important to their future than final exams: an SAT-like assessment that aims to cut through grade-point averages and judge students' real value to employers.
Martin Laidlaw Fife College's insight:

This is an interesting development. The issue highlighted is the same in the UK...poor employability and thinking skills from graduates of college and universities. While we have been aware of this in FE and have focussed attention on improving essential skills, I feel not enough resource is directed towards it.
