Making Connections: Global Student Technology Survey

The Navitas Student Technology Survey, run by the global Learning and Teaching team, explores how technology is used in diverse learning and teaching contexts at Navitas. Building on six years of qualitative and quantitative research in classrooms and colleges, this year’s report provides our first global view of student behaviours and attitudes towards using technology in learning.

Drawing on data gathered from 7,240 participants studying at 96 Navitas colleges in 26 countries around the world, findings are already being used to support strategic priorities in technology for teaching and learning, including:

  • Measurement of progress against goals related to use of technology in teaching and learning
  • Data to inform technology policies and procedures
  • Information for internal and external benchmarking
  • Feedback to inform a technology-enriched student experience and program delivery

The purpose of this research is to gain an understanding of student experiences, expectations and needs around technology in learning and contribute to existing industry knowledge in this area. Our findings highlight some familiar aspects of technology and its potential to connect people, places, systems and experiences in learning and teaching, helping us to make connections across seemingly disparate colleges and learning contexts.
