Abstract or Summary
  • This study explored how students navigate the technological landscape of a public, land-grant institution. Through online surveys and semi-structured, one-on-one interviews, the study operated through an anticipatory/participatory lens to research with the intent of understanding students' experiences with technology at a research institution. Using this methodology and Triandis and Triandis' (1960) Theory of Social Distance and Sanford's (1969) Theory of Challenge and Support as theoretical support, the study identified five themes regarding students' experiences with technology: (a) differences in students' perceived levels of technological fluency (b) institutional expectations of students' technological fluency, (c) variance in institutional training on educational technologies, (d) importance of personal computer ownership and Internet access, and (e) understanding individual technological needs. Coupled with the methodology, these findings serve to proffer institutional awareness and understanding of students' experiences of an institution's technological landscape.
