The digital future has arrived for further education – let’s get on board | TES

The digital future has arrived for further education – let’s get on board | TES | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

"...This does not mean the end of face-to-face learning, but hopefully a balanced blend of learning that’s more responsive to student and employer needs. This time, we are ready for a paradigm shift in how learning programmes are designed, delivered and assessed.

These area-based deliberations are set in a context of drastic cuts to the FE budget, so it’s important to remember that technology-enhanced blended learning is not a cheap option.

 

Any realignment of learning vision, leadership, culture, design, methodology, pedagogy and assessment may require upfront investment in infrastructure and human resources. But it has the potential to deliver long-term efficiencies by opening up opportunities to a greater number of learners – with a different paradigm for learning and a differently skilled workforce.

 

If we continue to mismatch inappropriate physical assets with inappropriate workforce skills, we are at risk of repeating earlier mistakes. If colleges are to avoid going the way of Comet and Woolworths, their leaders need to learn these lessons..."

Further Education is Broken!

Further Education is Broken! | eLearning tools | Scoop.it
My time as a student in Further Education (FE) was one of a handful of life changing experiences that I have been privileged to have.  Prior to studying a vocational subject at a College of Further Education I had hated school, there was no space at school for me to pursue the subjects I was really passionate about and the only teachers which seemed to value the skills I had were those who lead the extra curricular activities I took part in. The overriding message at school was; "The only successful end to your school career is good A level grades and a place at University".Wel

Mapping the learning and teaching

Mapping the learning and teaching | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

During the recent Jisc Digital Leadership Programme, we looked at mapping our use of social networking tools using the concept of Visitors and Residents. We were lucky to have the influential Donna Lanclos and Dave White supporting us.

 

I like how the mapping exercise makes you consider how you are using various tools and what needs to happen to change that map, how do you become more resident when using a tool such as Twitter for example. Or how do you start using a tool which is currently not on your map, such as a professional blog?

Is a key enabler of institutional digital capability one of access to digital devices?

Is a key enabler of institutional digital capability one of access to digital devices? | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

Is a key enabler of institutional digital capability one of access to digital devices? That was certainly one of the reasons that came out of a discussion we had at the Jisc Connect event in Wales back in July when I asked the question what are the barriers to digital capability. It certainly demonstrates that digital capability is a complex area with no simple quick answers.

Online diaries and calendars is just small aspect of digital life, but knowing where you are supposed to be, who you need to be with and what you are doing is at the core of being effective in your role. Those core digital capabilities, which includes using tools such as calendars and diaries, can be used as a catalyst for change, bringing efficiencies and effectiveness to an organisation. They should be the start of any digital capability enhancement journey.

Philip Moriarty stands up for the much-maligned presentation tool

 

...we should be aiming to involve and actively engage with students in the lecture; to make our teaching connect with, and challenge, as many as possible in that room. PowerPoint isn’t a barrier to doing this. If we exploit it correctly, it breaks down the barriers. We shouldn’t blame the technology for deficiencies that are wholly human.

Are you using mobile technologies to support inclusive practice - Jisc Digital Media | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

 

Following the successful completion of phase one of our Mobile Learning Guide update, we have again been delighted by the response from the community to our call for institutions to be involved with showcasing Mobile Learning in Inclusive Practice.

 

We have now selected 14 proposals to go forward. As with phase one, these institutions will be producing a video case study showcasing the use of apps to support students with learning or physical difficulties, spanning a range of ideas including such uses as making use of closed captioning and subtitles, to creating customised communication systems, to using apps as part of a sensory art session.
