Can you link to any evidence for or against either position?

Malcolm says (as we are discussing this face to face) the IPSO Mori poll (JISC 2008) suggested that students entering higher education expected to be shown new ways of learning using technology as part of their induction into university life, and were disappointed that this was missing.

 

But - departments and universities appear to use the lure of available technology (commoditised eg as wireless, connected halls, computer suites) and therefore the implicit promise that it will be used as part of their university learning.  However inductions often comprise talks by library, heads of services, without design, or multimedia rather than utilising techology
