Using Learning Technologies, Tools and Techniques in Delivering Digital Literacy Learning

A presentation tool which offers an alternative, creative, visual, interactive way to deliver a presentation. It is an augmented presentation tool that is an alternative to Power Point and offers a wide range of preset formats to choose from.
The learners can enter their text and adjust the sequence by dragging the slide using the mouse to its new position.
To support the text, learners can upload videos, images and music.
At the start of their presentation, learners can view a holistic overview/image of their presentation; and when filed, it records who created it and when.
Some other tools......
and how learner needs and preferences can be met by using them
Google Docs
1.1 Describe a range of learning technologies, tools and techniques

Technology: Smart phone
Tool: Plickers App

Plickers is an app that recognises a QR code which learners select in response to questions. The learners hold them up to be scanned by the tutor's smart phone.
Responses are recorded and results can be projected for the whole class to see.
Tutors can see on their screen individual progress

1.Learners don’t need digital devices. They are simply provided with a QR code on paper which they hold up in a specific way to answer questions.
2.Learners may find the activity to be engaging and fun.

1.Relies upon good wi fi signal for device to work properly. This could completely derail the session unless checked beforehand
2.If learners decide to hold up the QR code the wrong way as a joke, there is no way for the tutor to check if learning has taken place (without Q and A)

: Interactive whiteboard.

Smart tool software
A display screen that is connected to a computer and allows for viewing, input, and collaboration by multiple users
1. Interactive for tutors and learners.
2.Allows for a variety of collaborative activities.
1. Needs to be installed in the classroom and is not a tool that you can move around.
2.Need training to use successfully and to get the most benefit

Audio induction Loop systems

A listening technology for individuals with reduced ranges of hearing.
1. It is accessible and can easily accommodate one or more learners without any special software
2. Hearing people can access the loop system through headphones.
1. Can produce a buzzing noise if there is background interference
2. Can be expensive and needs specialist set up

1. It provides a platform to deliver a professional presentation. It can include all aspects of a presentation (videos, images, etc.) and it can be shared and controlled by the presenter on a many different devices, for examples tablets, iPads, laptops, etc.
2. It can be presented remotely to a maximum of 30 users; be embedded into a lesson for delivering any subject; can be made available to the public to adopt and adapt for their own use.
1. Handouts can only be in a PDF format, which are full page and do not allow for notes to be made.
2. It can be quite disorientating to view; some users complain it makes them feel dizzy.
File sharing space to create, share and store documents together
Storage is cloud/web based that allows ease of access at any time
Documents can be edited in real time and on the go

One of the most versatile and flexible collaborative resources that is available to practitioners and learners.
When learners work together to create a presentation (Power Point), collaborate on a report (Word) or create a survey (Charts), it only requires one member of the group to upload the document onto Google Docs and then invite their peers to 'share and edit' the document with them in real time without fear of losing it
As this document is stored in 'the cloud', it can be accessed at any time, at any location by any member of the invited team.
A learner can access Google docs on a variety of technological devices (tablets, laptops, PCs,) providing learners with the choice of tool, technology and technique in which to work collaboratively and inclusively

On line web based collaborative tool which is free to use
Allows for multiple users to add comments in 'real time'
Storage is cloud/web based that allows ease of access at any time

Hackpad is an online free collaboration tool that is used to capture, share and organise knowledge with a group of learners.

Each project is known as a 'collection' and this can be created in a 'workspace' that can be set up specifically for a team.

This can be managed, as either an individual project in which peers can reflect on each other's subject matter, or as a team with a team leader who can invite group members and allocate them specific roles in which to input their research/information.
It is ideally suited for a journal, record of reflection, descriptive writing, etc.

Learners can insert a table, image, file and the Hackpad records who has added to the collection by highlighting their name on the page.

Embedding learning strategies
Profile of two learners
Learner A
This learner has literacy needs but is currently a union learning representative. He wants to better himself and the unions have agreed that he can attend digital literacy session. I would like him to get some familiarity with the internet whilst at the same time learning something about digital footprints

Learner E
This learner has been educated up to degree level in a European country. She is quite resistant to technology and believes that traditional methods are better. Despite being well educated her digital literacy needs are quite high. I would like her to 'soften' her attitude to digital literacy in general, by seeing its uses and advantages, get some experience of using a digital literacy tool and learning something about digital footprints
The session makes use of Youtube (tool) which neither learners may be familiar with.
They also have to conduct a simple internet search (tool, technique) collaborate on line using padlet, hackpad, googledrive (tool, technique)

This range of tools, techniques and technologies provides a straightforward introduction into the world of digital literacy.

It supports their lack of knowledge and experience through its simplicity, whilst empowering them to feel confident to use the tools and techniques themselves.

Barriers to embedding tools, technologies and techniques
1. Lack of suitable devices eg computers, tablets etc
This can be particularly relevant in the workplace, but also in the college environment due to lack of suitable rooms.

2. Lack of internet signal, makes it impossible to work on line.
This again is relevant in the workplace but may also have an impact in the college environment where there is poor provision of wi fi

3. Lack of experience on the part of the learner makes using the tools difficult.
Sometimes learners' knowledge or experience is a limiting factor and prevents learning taking place.
How can the practitioner keep up to date with emerging tools, techniques and technologies?
1. Keep up to date with their professional development by taking courses

2. Try to use a new tool regularly eg develop use of tablet or smartphone

3. Keep up to date with new apps for mobile devices if they have an educational application

4. Experiment with new tools in place of tried and tested tools eg using prezi instead of powerpoint
