DESCRIPTION

In response to learner voice and a need to extend opportunities to enable access to and embrace the use of technology in lessons, Coleg Cambria has invested in a developing a 21st Century learning environment with a full wireless network coverage and an extensive range of mobile devices and projection facilities for classrooms. Learners are encouraged to bring their own devices to College, but to ensure inclusivity a range of equipment is available for use if needed. Alongside the investment in equipment was a drive to improve student experience, staff were supported to develop the use technology to engage and motivate learners and to support learning and assessment. In May 2013 Coleg Cambria (formerly Yale College) won the ColegauCymru Digital Learning Award (sponsored by Jisc RSC Wales). In June 2013, Estyn awarded its first FE College excellent for teaching and learning, stating, Trainer-mentors and teaching staff use ILT highly effectively to enhance teaching, learning and assessment. In the best cases, devices such as notepad computers and mobile phones are integrated into classroom and workshop activities. Teachers make good use of applications which allow, for example, instant assessment and feedback, links to further information resources using QR codes (Quick Recognition) and instant video replay to give feedback on practical tasks. Through case study examples, the workshop explores the techniques and technologies used to enhance teaching, learning and assessment and the development of the flipped classroom. Delegates will have hands-on opportunities to try some of the activities and apps used.
