Abstract:

Session presented on: Saturday, April 5, 2014

The use of Web 2.0 for educational programs in nursing and healthcare is expanding. The term Web 2.0 refers to the second generation of internet-based services that is “writable and interactive” with an emphasis on collaboration and sharing. The true power of Web 2.0 is the ability to harness the collective intelligence and knowledge of students using a variety of electronic media. Social writing tools such as blogs, Wiki’s and online journaling are very popular and may provide a new way for students and faculty to interact. Despite the advantages of this technology, there is a lack of research related to student engagement using Web 2.0 as a way to improve learning outcomes. This descriptive, correlational study evaluated student engagement with Web 2.0 tools among undergraduate nursing students. A convenience sample of 96 undergraduate nursing students enrolled in an online course were recruited to participate. A variety of Web 2.0 activities such as Wiki’s, blogs, and discussion board were utilized to engage students. Data were collected through online survey and learning software tracking tools. Usage scores indicated a high level of group interaction using the Web 2.0 tools with a positive correlation between student engagement and learning outcomes. The majority of students indicated a preference for “blogging” over the discussion board. Issues with technology were reported and the need for more faculty feedback requested. Engaging students through the use of Web 2.0 tools provide an innovative approach for collaborative learning and has the potential to improve learning outcomes.
