How do you use technology?
David White, a researcher at Oxford, proposes that our use of the Internet depends on our motivation for accessing it, that sometimes we are in ‘visitor’ mode, other times in ‘resident’ mode. He goes on to explain what these terms mean and demonstrates how we can analyze our usage by mapping it. Why is this important? Because if we map our use as educators, and students’ use, we can see where disconnects lie and determine how to help students best use the web to learn.
