"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."

Critical success factors of Technological Innovation

Critical success factors of Technological Innovation | To learn or not to learn? | Scoop.it

Information and communication technologies' rapid advancement, coupled with growing demand from a knowledge-driven society, places increased pressure on higher-education institutions to innovate with technology and disseminate the results.1 Researchers have proposed multiple definitions of innovation; however, it commonly refers to "the introduction of a new idea, method, or device."2 Today, the innovation focus is frequently on technology, largely because new technologies can provide flexibility and enhance operations for institutions that invest the time and energy in the adoption process.3


Once institutions decide to pursue a technological innovation, they must consider the logistics of how the process occurs as well as the timing. This may pose a dilemma, as multiple diverse groups on university campuses have differing — and sometimes competing — goals and priorities.  Attempting to meet the demands of the campus community may impact the innovation process in terms of timing and/or addressing strategic goals. For example, some groups may need to move more quickly than practical due to an immediate need or readily available funding, while others may need to move more slowly to allow for thorough identification of requirements or to secure funding. IT leaders often must find a way to navigate this balancing act and meet the needs of their campus.


This research focused on two groups that play primary roles in higher-education innovation efforts: faculty and IT leaders. Faculty members comprise a primary constituent group on university campuses and use many different technologies. The ubiquitous use of technology by faculty and other constituent groups poses a challenge for university IT leaders — one that will likely continue to escalate in the foreseeable future as new teaching and learning tools continue to emerge.4 Meeting this challenge, while ensuring faculty members have an innovative atmosphere in which to be creative, is a major consideration of IT leaders on university campuses.


I conducted a survey to explore the perceptions of faculty and IT leaders regarding the critical success factors (CSFs) that impact technological innovation, adoption, and diffusion. The resulting data can be used to help university faculty members and IT leaders gain a better understanding of the CSFs that help ensure efficacious technological innovation and diffusion in a university setting. It can also help faculty members and IT leaders gain insights into each other's perspectives and create new synergies through collaboration, as well as better support innovation and diffusion processes by focusing efforts on the most critical items.

"Reading Rockets shares that "A concept map is a visual organizer that can enrich students' understanding of a new concept. Using a graphic organizer, students think about the concept in several ways. Most concept map organizers engage students in answering questions such as, "What is it? What is it like? What are some examples?" Concept maps deepen understanding and comprehension."Cast reports: "There is solid evidence for the effectiveness of graphic organizers in facilitating learning." A summary of this finding is that, "When looking across 23 different studies they found a consistent effect on comprehension."

The temporal perspective in higher education learners: Comparisons between Online & Onsite Learning | To learn or not to learn? | Scoop.it

Higher Education increases flexibility with online learning solutions. Nevertheless, dropout rates in online university are large. Among the reasons, one aspect deserving further study is students’ Time Perspective (TP), which has been studied in onsite HE. It is necessary to know the TP profile of the growing population of online students, and consider its relation with students’ preference and convenience factors for choosing online or onsite contexts. In this study, learners’ TP in an online and an onsite Catalan HE institutions are compared. Results show that HE students present a high future orientation in general, while online students showed a higher orientation to past negativism. Basic guides are given to help institutions and students in the choice of the better suited learning context according to their TP.

Check out this great visual image that helps to link digital technology with Bloom’s Taxonomy. Students could select specific resources to assist them with planning, evaluating, designing, investigating or communicating their design ideas, plans and solutions or alternatively use one of these digital technologies to research, collect and collate information relevant to their market research for a new product or product re-design they are working on. Whether your students are engaging in higher or lower order thinking technology activities, there is a digital resource here to suit their needs. 

 

Curriculum Links:

 

Generate, develop, test and communicate design ideas, plans and processes for various audiences using appropriate technical terms and technologies including graphical representation techniques (ACTDEP036) (ACARA, 2014).

 

Effectively and safely use a broad range of materials, components, tools, equipment and techniques to make designed solutions (ACTDEP037) (ACARA, 2014).

 

Use project management processes when working individually and collaboratively to coordinate production of designed solutions (ACTDEP039) (ACARA, 2014).
