New technologies are redefining teens’ social interactions and leading to changes in teen culture. Today's teenagers are increasingly using technology to stay connected with one another and establish new networks and friendships. Social media and digital devices have become important cultural symbols significantly impacting on the development of their identity – but more importantly, we need to ask, what is the impact on their learning and literacy? A recent US study sought to understand how urban teens perceive their technology use in relation to their group culture and explores its potential for learning and in particular for literacy instruction.
Feedback is fundamental in learning – it is through explanation of errors that we learn. It is valuable then to ask, what is effective assessment feedback? Can students interpret and use assessment feedback to improve learning? Can technology aid assessment feedback? A recent study explores the role of assessment feedback through a research project which investigated how students at a UK university engaged with summative feedback, particularly focussing on the use of technology to address the identified issues.
