[BLANK_AUDIO] Hi, my name is Jansen Hews. I'm currently studying a master of arts
e-Learning. And as part of that subject I have to do quite a lot of online involvement in
terms of. Posting to a forum peer feedback and, and
certain weeks, moderating those forums. So there's a whole lot online content and
that is augmented by face to face teaching once
a week. I think online learning is particularly
important and relevant, especially as we go into. The 21st century and, and the, the rich
information age we live in. I think, it's really important
professionally because I think whether, whatever field you might be working in,
digital is really important. I look at online learning as having
various, professional outputs. Whether it be enhancing training and
learning helping me establish, communities of practice within my
workplace where I can, enhance my and other colleagues' professional
understanding, and learning a bit more about how to use technologies in that online, online
spaces is a benefit. In terms of study, currently digital
technologies have helped me. Source information, be able to locate
information on the move and also pick that up and read it and digest it and then do
something with it at any given time. I work fulltime at the museum, which is
anywhere between 40 to 50 hours a week. I'm studying one to two subjects per
semester at any given time. Having that flexibility to, to pace my own
learning is, is a massive benefit. Also, in terms of actual coursework being
able to choose when I contribute to forums and how I contribute to them,
has been a massive timesaver. And I'm not limited to certain hours
within a particular day or time. And that's been hugely beneficial. Learning is very much a social thing. So, and particularly the way I learn it
is, is very much social learning. So, that means negotiating meaning and
understanding with my colleagues. There's a comfortability that it, it
provides. Where I, I feel like it could be
comfortable to ask those questions. And question some, some of the ways that
they going about things and vice versa. And I think that the online learning means
that you've got it in one context but, the further you go online the
wider and wider those networks become. So it goes from, what might be you and a
friend talking about it to you and your classmates to, you and
your work context and broader. As, as that expands and, and the insights and understanding that that
provides is. all about that social interaction. One of the greatest challenges I find with, with online learning, especially
around group work, is the lack of social or face to face
contact that you might otherwise get. And the challenge there is that sometimes
simple things like communicating an idea. Takes that much longer. And is that much more difficult. Sometimes with online learning, you, I
might feel a sense of isolation which doesn't ordinarily
happen in a general classroom setting. Technology is a great device in terms of the affordances it, it provides for
learning. I think what needs to, to be there is
support in terms of. How to use those technologies effectively. because there is just so much there. How can I utilize it to, to the best means
for the student. In, in terms of digital literacies and,
and the teaching of digital literacies, a lot of
what is done within the coursework is pointing us
to great material and, and readings on that sort of
thing. And there's a lot of material about what it means to be digitally literate and
engaging with technologies. But, in terms of how you actually go about
it and, and achieve that literacy it's something
that's largely self directed, I'd say. And just involves a lot of critical
analysis and working out where and which materials is going to be most
relevant for, for what I'm needing to do. What I use at university in terms of
tablets, smartphones, is something which is very
much bring your own device type model in terms of how that might integrate into coursework is, is
left to your discretion. There is the idea that students will need to often find their own solutions and
sometimes. Those solutions mean going outside of
various portals whether it be learning management systems
or other. So for example when we found some of those
LMS systems too prescriptive or, or limiting, what we'd often do is, is find
our own forums, our own means of. Communicating outside of those. Everything's pretty much online. It'll be very rare that I'll walk to into a, a library, whether at university
or elsewhere. And, and pick up a book. Because I'll invariably, often be able to
find the chapter from that book online, if I, I look long and
hard enough. In terms of researching particular topics
The journal articles that, that we're given provide a,
a really great understanding and, and often
difficult and complex understanding that involves a lot of reading outside of
that. What I do find from the students' perspective is there's a lot of
information. So the idea of knowledge is there. It's, it's very tangible, and is able to
be, gotten and, and taken. How to do that is another thing, and,
currently in the coursework it wouldn't be something
that's necessarily taught. What I will often do is go through the
reading list and, and the majority of those are available in
the library as PDFs. And, and the majority of those will be
journal articles. Some will be links to particular web
pages. And what I will often do is take all that
information, download it to my tablet, and then as I'm reading it, I'll,
I'll use various tools to annotate that. And, I'll use Google, I use Google Docs
quite extensively when I'm doing assignments because it allows me to
pick it up wherever I go. Whether it be at work, or at home, or
elsewhere. When I'm, given a particular assignment,
I'll often use Google Scholar and just troll the web for, for
related material. And I'll I find that particularly useful
because you can see how much that article or that author has
been cited by others. And I find that, peer supported idea
really important in terms of okay, this resource is obviously
a valuable one. And I'll utilize the, the university's
forums in terms of getting information from other students
and what they've found. And similarly sharing those so that that
can be a benefit to the cohort. Other forms of online resources that I use
are blogs quite, quite extensively. And I'll subscribe and follow those
particular blogs. Or I'll, I'll actively seek those out. Other ones will be various videos I find
through a lot of the content. They'll often be a talk or a presentation
related to that. So, some of those channels include
YouTube, Vimeo some of the I, iTunes channels, as well as
say TedX. The use of open source technologies and,
and how I use that as a student I'm, I'm. Very much in favor of because I think,
what you actually bring to the table people can augment and add to and, and, and further along what you've
developed. And I'm very much interested in promoting
that for example, I'll make a lot of my photos and images open source so
that they can be repurposed and reused. and, we'll often use Creative Commons
licensing that have acknowledgements that allow people to
do that. And I think that, that whole movement of open source is ultimately a positive
thing, especially for education with, the access that,
the access that students have to some these
technologies. It needs to be opened up. [BLANK_AUDIO] Some advice I'd have for teachers in terms
of using technology in the way they deliver their teaching and
learning is, not to be afraid of it. And to, bring to the, to allow students to enhance that experience and, and bring
solutions where possible. And allow them to steer the conversations in, in navigating the use of that
technology. because in some instances you'll find that
the students will be far more able and, and willing, and capable of
doing that, than you are. So don't be afraid to, to let them lead
those conversations. [INAUDIBLE] that's pretty much it. It's not massive. It's a good thing. Yeah. [BLANK_AUDIO]
