Developing the digital literacies of academic staff: an institutional approach | Newland | Research in Learning Technology

Developing the digital literacies of academic staff: an institutional approach | Newland | Research in Learning Technology | Daily Newspaper | Scoop.it

For each literacy, there is an explanation of what the literacy is, why it is important and how to gain it, with links to resources and training opportunities. After an initial pilot, the DLF website was launched in the summer of 2014. This paper discusses the strategic context and policy development of the DLF, its initial conception and subsequent development based on a pilot phase, feedback and evaluation. It critically analyses two of the ways that engagement with the DLF have been promoted: (1) formal professional development schemes and (2) the use of a ‘School-based’ approach. It examines the successes and challenges of the University of Brighton’s scheme and makes some suggestions for subsequent steps including taking a course-level approach.

The Learning Affordances of Augmented Reality for Museum Exhibits on Human Health

The Learning Affordances of Augmented Reality for Museum Exhibits on Human Health | Daily Newspaper | Scoop.it
Using examples from across formal and informal settings,this article illustrates the learning affordances of AR for museums that aim tocommunicate concepts related to human health. These topics often presentspatiotemporal challenges for learning, but can be made more accessible tolearners when contextualized within personally, socially, and culturally relevantcontexts.

A systemic model for differentiating school technology integration | Amiel | Research in Learning Technology

A systemic model for differentiating school technology integration | Amiel | Research in Learning Technology | Daily Newspaper | Scoop.it
The objective of this study is to investigate the systemic conditions that contribute or inhibit the development of different activities by teachers making use of new media. We compiled a list of well-known conditions for technology integration success and mapped these in the historical and culturally bound perspective of activity theory (cultural historical activity theory). We conducted a multiple case study analysis of four schools, public and private. The results point to unique and distinctive scenarios even when homogeneity would be expected, reinforcing the argument that material conditions do not determine pedagogical outcomes nor do they determine changes in practice. Beyond this, the study proposes a methodology that can help elicit tensions in technology integration, pointing to avenues for school development.

Participant association and emergent curriculum in a MOOC: can the community be the curriculum? | Bell | Research in Learning Technology

Participant association and emergent curriculum in a MOOC: can the community be the curriculum? | Bell | Research in Learning Technology | Daily Newspaper | Scoop.it
We investigated how participants associated with each other and developed community in a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) about Rhizomatic Learning (Rhizo14). We compared learner experiences in two social networking sites (SNSs), Facebook and Twitter. Our combination of thematic analysis of qualitative survey data with analysis of participant observation, activity data, archives and visualisation of SNS data enabled us to reach a deeper understanding of participant perspectives and explore SNS use.

Perceptions of online tutorials for distance learning in mathematics and computing | Lowe | Research in Learning Technology | Daily Newspaper | Scoop.it
We report on student and staff perceptions of synchronous online teaching and learning sessions in mathematics and computing. The study is based on two surveys of students and tutors conducted 5 years apart, and focusses on the educational experience as well as societal and accessibility dimensions. Key conclusions are that both staff and students value online sessions, to supplement face-to-face sessions, mainly for their convenience, but interaction within the sessions is limited. Students find the recording of sessions particularly helpful in their studies.

Polymer Interfaces: Synthetic Strategies Enabling Functionality, Adaptivity, and Spatial Control - Macromolecules (ACS Publications) | Daily Newspaper | Scoop.it
Polymer interfaces are ubiquitous in Nature and technology. Equipping artificial polymer-based interfaces with highly defined functions requires advanced macromolecular chemistry and powerful chemical tools. In this Perspective, we explore the nature of anisotropic—i.e., spatially resolved—polymer interfaces prepared via top-down and bottom-up approaches with selected examples from the recent literature.
