Abstract

This paper is a report on the findings of a study conducted with students aged 10-14 who could attend university 2020. The aim of the study was to determine their thoughts about their technological requirements when they attend university in 2020. Semi-structured interviews were completed with three groups of students from three schools. Thematic analysis was used to identify themes under three headings: about the student; about technology; and about university. Findings indicate that students have a desire to attend university; they are using a variety of technologies outside formal school settings; and they have clear thoughts about what technology should look like at university. Universities need to consider the importance of future student voice in strategic planning of student information technology requirements.
