The University of Oxford and OCLC Research are collaborating on a short-term, JISC-funded study to investigate the theory of digital residents and visitors with students in the transitional educational stage, the time between late-stage secondary (high school) and the first year of college or university.
This work is intended to increase understanding of how learners engage with the Web and how educational services and systems can attract and sustain a possible new group of lifelong learners. The trans-Atlantic partnership will support comparison of students' digital learning strategies in different cultural contexts.
