John Faulkner, Programme Manager and Joanne Barnett, Senior Lecturer for IT, Digital Media and E-Learning, recently attended the ‘Future of Technology in Education’, a well attended event run by ULCC, aimed at e-learning experts from all over the UK. http://fote-conference.com/wordpress/ . The prominent theme that emerged throughout the day, was around the use of devices such as iPads and smartphones in the classroom and how they can be used to enhance learning anywhere and at any time.
So what is SCOLA doing that is new or innovative to address this topic for their students? The exciting news is that we now have iPads for students’ use both to enhance learning in a variety of ways within lessons as well as for wider use at staff and student drop in sessions. Tutors are currently being offered training for using the devices as well as researching the best apps to enhance teaching and learning.
Contact the tryIT centre for details and look out for further exciting open learning opportunities in the next month.
