If you teach or manage sixth form provision, or teach in an HE setting, you might be interested in checking out these latest results which summarise survey results (2014) of current e-technology trends in use across UK universities.

As students move through the educational school phases and increasing levels of independence in their studies develops, introducing them to e-technologies can be very liberating for both student and teacher.  The use of e-portfolios, blogging, and wikis appears high on the list of current trends of e-technologies in use in HE establishments, so the earlier your students feel comfortable using the tools the better, as many students report a huge leap not just in content but in pedagogical design between key stage 5 (sixth form) and university settings.
