Abstract

Digital technologies are widely used in education but do not always consider the student perspective. This study investigates how international STEM undergraduate students are using technology to support their learning inside and outside the classroom. The results from data analysis of a large survey and a set of individual student interviews demonstrate that students use technology in many ways to support their learning often showing a preference for technology that is outside the formal university systems. This suggests universities need to re-evaluate their approach to technology enhanced learning to ensure it is meeting student needs and addresses cultural differences.
