Part of Educational Strategy? Our students will be equipped to live, thrive, learn, work, collaborate, influence and lead in the increasingly digital and connected world We need to develop digital literacies We must provide learning experiences that encourage DLs We need a real word learning environment (including own devices) We must ensure our strategies and policies support the above CENTRE FOR INNOVATION IN TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION @HughDavis #HEA_BYOD 3

Digital Literacies? 4

Finding, evaluating, processing, organising, analysing, presenting Beliefs and Practices Street Wisdom on the Digital Highway Business Models Digital Citizenship Using applications and services Digital Workpractices Information Literacy Digital Academic Practices ICT Skills Identity and Reputation Communication Media Literacy Social Networking Collaboration Networks (of People) Evaluating Affordances 5

• • • • The learner is given the stuff via the network The learner finds stuff on the network The learner finds stuff from the network (of people) The learner is part of the network and contributes • Stuff Business • ontology Beliefs and Practices Street Wisdom on the Digital Highway Models Digital Citizenship Digital Workpractices Information Literacy Digital Academic Practices ICT Skills Identity and Reputation Communication Media Literacy Social Networking Collaboration Networks (of People) Evaluating Affordances 6

Digital Literacies are the skills needed to live, learn, work, collaborate, influence and lead in the virtual and digital world Beliefs and Practices Street Wisdom on the Digital Highway Business Models Digital Citizenship Digital Workpractices Information Literacy Digital Academic Practices ICT Skills Identity and Reputation Communication Media Literacy Social Networking Collaboration Networks (of People) We are preparing students for jobs that don‟t yet exist, using work-practices we Evaluating don‟t yet know supported by tools not yet invented. Affordances 7

What’s Wrong with VLEs? VLEs embody outdated views of teaching as “push” put the teacher at the centre rather than the student or the network do not integrate with the tools and environments students or lecturers use. are fundamentally closed - they do not have any understanding of networked learning lock you in don‟t encourage learners to take responsibility for their own learning, tools or digital literacy CENTRE FOR INNOVATION CITE IN TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION @HughDavis #HEA_BYOD 8

The VLE is Dead – long live the PLE (above image is from a generator at http://generator.kitt.net/) (Thanks Dave Millard) CENTRE FOR INNOVATION CITE IN TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION 9

An aside on “Digital Natives” argument Learning has not changed but expectations of how its done may have Recent research shows that although students may not be scared of technology and may live in Facebook, they have increasingly naïve understandings of finding and evaluating information White and Le Cornu suggest a better distinction might be Digital Visitors and Residents White, D.S. and Le Cornu, A., „Visitors and Residents: A New Typology for Online Engagement‟, First Monday, Vol 16 No 9, 5th Sept 2011 CENTRE FOR INNOVATION CITE IN TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION 10

How do digital residents behave? 11

They have their own toolkits CENTRE FOR INNOVATION CITE IN TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION @HughDavis #HEA_BYOD 12

They build On-line Identity and Reputation Profile Blogs Tweets Web site Search Engine Recognition Contributions (e.g SlideShare) What does the web think of you (pipl.com, zoominfo.com) Badges and Stars CENTRE FOR INNOVATION CITE IN TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION @HughDavis #HEA_BYOD 13

They have their personal learning networks Using texts? Using Facebook? Uing LinkedIn Using Twitter? PLN Tools emerging that use semantics to connect right people CENTRE FOR INNOVATION IN TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION @HughDavis #HEA_BYOD 14

And they have their own devices kindle Which they administer themselves! CENTRE FOR INNOVATION IN TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION @HughDavis #HEA_BYOD 15

An Aside on the Mobile Issue Mobile devices work all day on one battery charge CENTRE FOR INNOVATION IN TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION @HughDavis #HEA_BYOD 16

Issues? 17

Policy and Security Most of the time people only want access to the internet (including University intranet sites) When accessing university systems we need a password challenge (and single sign on) We already have perfectly good policies for • • • Acceptable Use Virus Protection Password Protection of devices The problem is they are not enforceable It‟s a social thing! CENTRE FOR INNOVATION IN TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION @HughDavis #HEA_BYOD 18

Some of the Issues a University must decide How we will support those devices? What devices we will support? Who will pay for software / apps required? Which devices can access University systems (as opposed to internet/intranet)? If the University supplies hardware, who own it? (whose AppleId etc?) There will certainly be more discussion about this today. Plenty of potential to alienate your users! CENTRE FOR INNOVATION IN TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION @HughDavis #HEA_BYOD 19

Curriculum Ensure curriculum has real world problems that need real world technology • • • • • Group projects with remote collaborations Solving authentic problems with authentic data Digital ethnography Creating stuff, creating ontology Simulations CENTRE FOR INNOVATION IN TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION @HughDavis #HEA_BYOD 20

Summary Develop digital literacies Provide learning experiences that encourage DLs Ensure students have a real word learning environment (including own devices) Ensure our strategies and policies support the above CENTRE FOR INNOVATION IN TECHNOLOGIES & EDUCATION Thank you Any Questions?
