Curriculum Landscape: Learning & Innovation
Transcript of Curriculum Landscape: Learning & Innovation
Move the elements
Create a unique layout
Technology should be
integral to teaching and learning
Learning & Innovation
Should enable us to deliver cheaper, deeper, faster, more relevant learning
Should make Salford City College a must place to study
To enable us to realise this mission we have been successful in winning two bids.
CHANGING THE LEARNING LANDSCAPE (funded by HEA, NUS, ALT, JISC, JISC)
which provided £15,000 worth of mentorship from the sponsors and their extended community to equip us with the knowledge and skills to create a vision, set realistic targets, recognise barriers and drivers, engage and to enthuse key stakeholders to ensure a widespread culture shift.
This project saw initiatives such as:
- Learning Wheel
- Learner Entitlements
- Digital SkillsScan
- Reflective practice pilot
Embed Technology in staff and student practice.
Our aim is to improve learning, teaching and working though out the college at all levels: from students, to governors, business support to managers, teaching staff ...
LEARNING FUTURES is a £1 million learning technologies programme commissioned and funded by The Education and Training Foundation.
The programme will run until September 2015 and will develop the capability and capacity of the education and training workforce to use learning technologies effectively in order to improve outcomes for learners and employers.
Building on the success and popularity of the DigiPals we wrote a bid to develop a CPD programme.
delivered by 10 DigiPals (four staff and six students)
to roll out professional development on the use of technology for learning.
Essentially students to be co-authors
to their learning.
Supporting staff and students in
learning skills to improve digital literacy
Culture Shift. (Part 2)
Embed Technology in staff and student practice.
Annual Research identifying 10 emerging technologies
that will impact on education over the next 5 years...
Research by New Media Consortium...
750 technology experts from colleges and universities in over 40 countries
Global is the new local

Resources and Infrastructure...
Plenty of food
1. Continue to invest in the network and wifi access
2. Concentrate on reliable existing resources e.g. Office 365, Moodle and exploit those to the max
1. Use Digital Skills scan results to provide training for skills gaps
2. Alternative methods to share best practice
1. Change the culture to embrace technology
2. Innovative time tables/registers - learning does not depend on physical presence
3. Consolidate appropriate areas of study to be delivered distanced based e.g. H&S, Careers Guidance, Research Methods,
4. Invest in staff to provide the confidence deliver in a digital era e.g Golden Hour
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

What the papers say...
"Using our tablets or phones in class to research things as I think we understand it more if we do the work ourselves. :) "
...don't be limited by location
Your Next Steps?
At the beginning of 2014 a Ministerial team from DfE and BIS asked a newly formed Education Technology Action Group (ETAG) how digital technology might empower teachers and learners by enabling innovation using the new smart technologies around us. Their intention was to see how that empowering could deepen and accelerate learning - and by the way they added, "it needs to be fun”.
Conclusions and recommendations:
use of digital technology in education is not optional.
Competence with digital technology to find information, to create, to critique and share knowledge, is an essential contemporary skill set.
Digital technology can and should bring joy and engagement: a delight in stellar progress, the exhilaration of unexpected challenges, some playfulness, the reaffirmation of a global audience.
Some things will need to move over, to be dropped, to change and to vary to allow all this to happen. We are calling for everyone to play their part in enabling this progress
Technology removes geographic boundaries
don't like using technology because I get confused"
"We don't use much computers in lesson. This makes lessons boring as we only have whiteboards and books"
"I find use of technology in class is a great tool for learning so more of that would be great!"
"SOME TUTORS ..DO NOT KNOW HOW TO USE AND THEY NEVER USE TECHNOLOGY IN OUR CLASSROOM ... BECAUSE THEY DO NOT KNOW IT....THEY DO NOT WANT TO LEARN...THEY ALWAYS AVOID IT WHENEVER..."
"More working together as groups"
"students should get a grant to be able to afford necessary tech"
The Further Education Learning Technology Action Group (FELTAG) was set up in January 2013 by Matthew Hancock, Minister of State for Skills and Enterprise in BIS, as a sector group to make practical recommendations aimed at ensuring the effective use of digital technology in learning, teaching and assessment in Further Education and Skills.
FELTAG agreed that:
• digital technology was not the end goal in itself
• Government cannot, and should not, provide all the answers
• ownership by the FE sector of FELTAG’s outcomes is key
FELTAG’s focus was divided into thematic workstreams:
The sector has to keep abreast of change.
2. Investment and Capital Infrastructure:
Procurement must be appropriate and agile.
4. Workforce capacity:
3. Regulation and Funding:
Regulation and funding must not inhibit innovation and its effectiveness in improving learners’ outcomes.
The entire workforce has to be brought up to speed to fully understand the potential of learning technology.
Relationships between the FE community and employers should become closer and richer, and enhanced by learning technology inside and outside the workplace.
Learners must be empowered to fully exploit their own understanding of, and familiarity with digital technology for their own learning.

Students as co-authors/mentors/influencers
Providers to explain and justify how they use digital technology across the curriculum to enhance learning. It should not be possible to obtain a rating of Good or Outstanding from Ofsted or the QAA for HE without having provided a good or outstanding justification for your use of digital technology to enhance learning across the curriculum from September 2015.
