Evidence is mounting that new forms of technology-enhanced learning and instruction, such as personalised learning, open online courses, educational games and apps, and tools for learning analytics, tend to be used and accessed in unequal ways, and they may even exacerbate inequality. In February and May 2017, a group of researchers, educators, and technologists from the Digital Media and Learning Research Hub convened for in-depth working sessions to share challenges and solutions for how learning technologies can provide the greatest benefits for our most vulnerable learners.
Accessing and posting on social media has become a daily habit for many Australians. Social media is used by individuals to keep in touch with friends and family, by groups to inform their members of relevant information and by organisations to market their services and products. However, is there a role for social media in vocational education and training (VET)? This report looks at how social media is being used within the VET sector as a tool in teaching and learning. The researchers conducted interviews with teachers, students and employers across three different registered training organisations (RTOs) to determine the types of social media most useful in teaching and learning, how they are being used, and whether the outcomes for students are being improved.
