Student capability/confidence

A very, shy Level 1 student recently moved to UK. Speaks English as a second language.

Uses digital resources to translate and ensure that she has a voice in a debate and in class discussions.

Enables her to feel confident when participating when articulating ideas in online group discussions

Improve the quantity and quality of technology-enabled learning and social spaces, and integrate, evaluate and promote the use of technology across workshops, classrooms and digital learning zones. Create fluid spaces that allow flexible use and accommodate different modes of learning, and encourage community access, to provide a resource for Salford residents to develop their digital skills.
3. Technical environment:

Implement a sustained programme of investment, to establish the appropriate IT infrastructure, systems and virtual environment that supports and enables the achievement of the strategy, with sufficient resilience that minimises business interruption and offers an appropriate level of longevity and future proofing. Ensure core systems and services are better integrated and designed to provide a more supportive, intuitive and collaborative learning environments.

Create an appropriate structure that harnesses the synergies between the existing LRC and ITS services to offer a coherent, responsive and well-resourced service, where team members are competent and adequately skilled to deliver the strategic aims. Build capacity and expertise within the structure, to support implementation, CPD & skills development, instructional design, a transformative VLE experience, high quality content curation & development and innovation.
5. Digital Literacies:
Develop the digital literacy of both staff and learners through the development and roll-out of an effective CPD programme and weave digital learning in to all learning activities/object, so learners and staff acquire the skills to thrive in learning and working environments. Develop initiatives that foster collaboration and peer learning between all groups and ages, and engage students in developing the digital skills of the wider community.

Develop a quality and performance management system that sets baseline standards and measures the impact of the digital learning, providing learning analytics to inform individual learning plans and early intervention. Set KPIs that report on department and individual staff performance and help inform the CPD programme.
Our Aims
Networking/donated resources

Staff member set up a Twitter account for the course/department. Local company saw the engagement on Twitter.

The company started to interact and recently donated £16,000 worth of resources to the course.
Professions are no longer geographically constrained
e.g. Surgeons in the United States removed the gall bladder of a women 6000 km away in France without even setting foot on French soil.

A robot pharmacist processed 2 million prescriptions with only one error during a period of one year
, whilst the US population of human pharmacists drug errors amount to approximately 37million each year.

Confidence building

SAM, short for Semi-Automated Mason,
Technology should be
integral to teaching and learning

Should enable us to deliver deeper, faster, more relevant learning

Should make the institute a desirable and flexible place to study

Should enable students: to find information, to create, to critique and share knowledge

Should bring joy and engagement, some fun and playfulness

Should enable them to learn inside AND beyond the classroom

Should enable staff to create more stimulating and interactive lessons

Should provide further opportunities for collaboration on global level

Should inject more fun - ultimately making their lessons more exciting and interesting to deliver

Current resources 'available' at Salford College...
Which of the these technologies are in in place at your institution?

Training/development is more important than the initial purchase.

We need to consolidate. Reduce number of resources. Learn to use, and exploit flexible, reliable tools. Students need teachers to be capable of using tech confidently and effectively.
