research addressing digital learners
Research Addressing Digital Learners
  • Need for a longitudinal study “to identify how individuals engage in both the virtual and physical worlds to get information for different situations” (Connaway & Dickey 2010, p.56).
  • The information literacy of young people, has not improved with the widening access to technology: in fact, their apparent facility with computers disguises some worrying problems (Centre for Information Behaviour and the Evaluation of Research 2008).
  • Academic staff perceive students as being more digitally capable than is really the case(Beetham, McGill, and Littlejohn 2009).

“…our generation isn’t technology orientated. I think it’s always a stereotype.”

(Participant UKS4)

slide11

“I think that lots of like companies and people away from my generation think that we rely and we’re obsessed with gadgets and gizmos and everybody has to buy the newest iPhone and iPad and newest everything. At the end of the day, as a student, are you really know is that is what the internet is for. How you get to it – it doesn’t matter if you don’t own a computer and you have to come to the library to use it. Um…like it’s available to you and you don’t care like how you get it.”

(WorldCat.org Focus Group Interview UKU4th year Participant)
