Embedding Digital Skills into Education – Increasing Employability and Lifetime Prospects Sue Beckingham | @suebecks | Sheffield Hallam University Inside Government Digital Inclusion 2014: Ensuring the Delivery of „Digital by Default‟

We want our students and graduates to 1 • develop confident face to face and online communication skills 2 • work collaboratively both synchronously and asynchronously 3 • develop a professional online presence 4 • use digital tools responsibly and effectively

What do we mean by digital? "By „digital‟, we mean content or communication that is delivered through the internet – whether the user is on a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, mobile phone or a digital device not yet invented." DFID 2012 “What is at stake isn‟t just great technology and innovation, it‟s about helping people to build their own future” Prime Minister David Cameron

Using digital tools to develop confident communication skills Students created digital 'About Me' videos. Choice of: video to camera (the majority used their own mobile phones) or a screencast with voiceover Example used http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/

Online group meetings and interview simulation Google Hangouts or Skype meetings were captured using screencast-o-matic. Students then embedded the videos into their individual reflective journals.

Developing digital collaboration skills Students used Google Drive to record group meeting minutes and agendas, writing reports, diagrams and more. This was done both synchronously and asynchronously.
