Presentation on Practitioner Capability in using technology for learning UK 2011. Interesting findings that practitioners now have a student-centred approach to the use of technology for learning with a focus on learning outcomes rather than any piece of kit, or social media. The use of VLE's has now become 'normalised'

  • This presentation covers the initial research for this project, working with five providers. We are currently working with another 15 providers and a final report will be presented via LSIS in Autumn 2011. If anyone is interested in the work, our methodology and any follow-up activity, please contact Nigel Ecclesfield at LSIS – see contact slide.
  • Drawn from the work carried out by Becta 2000 – 2010 and used in a wide range of their Becta Review documents in this period. A bit picky maybe but confidence is not required in dealing with the familiar. It is either a new technology or a new application of an old technology.
  • 218 practitioners responded to 19 questions; and provided 32,000 words of free text clarifying the attitudes they took to specific technologies or other questions. We’re extending this study now to 15 providers
  • We will be showing you the survey tool live at the session and the hand out contains screen dumps to show you how it appears to users. Our paper will provide an appendix with the complete survey details, including the question matrix.
  • These charts need a descriptive X axis. The numbers have no real relevance.
  • Not all X axis titles are showing. Again the charts need reworking.
  • Colleges must accommodate the fragmentation of the use of technologies amongst staff and students. Perhaps this is Web 2.00 arena or the blooming one? In fact each of these statements can be expanded into all kinds of exciting areas for further discussion. Teachers have more confidence to explore rather than wait passively to be taught and directed.

    • the distinction between
    • e-confidence , based on the capability of practitioners and their managers in an institutional setting to cope with the new and
    • e-maturity at a system level, which emphasises the capacity of the system to assimilate and develop the affordances of technological developments to meet the needs of learners and other stakeholders.

      • Survey of 250 practitioners in 5 providers
      • Research instrument developed from original work at Thanet College asking about attitudes to technology- in-action
      • Using Survey Monkey, the structure of the instrument was changed to incorporate free text responses to provide opportunities for respondents to expand on their responses
      • Individual and provider profiles generated by the survey along with practitioner narratives

    • I find work carried out with the VLE improves the quality of my work and learner results;
    • I know what texting is and I may use it.
    • I have taken part in on-line discussion with students for work purposes.
    • City Lit. Humanities
    • International Relations I use the VLE routinely in different ways and this work is established in my practice - uploading journal articles, book chapters - but also identifying websites and news articles of interest on websites, for my courses.

  • 11.
    • I use the VLE routinely in different ways and this work is established in my practice. I use the VLE in a variety of ways, from uploading and assessment of student's work, to announcing events and providing an online platform to download essential course materials. I use texting regularly to reach learners and colleagues. I use text tools to communicate with students, and also as a record of communication with at risk students. I am aware on-line meeting with colleagues is possible through the Internet I have taken part in on-line discussion with students for work purposes. Computer based resources are an essential tool for teaching and learning and success in my work I produce all of my learning resources using a computer. I have made sound files for students or others to hear. I use sound files and upload them for instructional purposes, and to provide evidence to assess student knowledge I have used story boards to capture work and to demonstrate techniques and important points I use video and so do my students as and integral part of teaching and learning. I have read blogs and know how to comment on one I have initiated an activity in social media I have not found social media particularly successful thus far, but am looking at ways to develop this. I can think and write reflectively. Teaching through technology is often guiding and supporting learners to their objectives I have spoken to staff teachers elsewhere in the college through formal means such as Town Meetings. I work collaboratively as a means of improving my effective contribution to College life I have arranged for students to create and share resources amongst themselves to improve learning. I can ask technicians for advice on the operation of the technology as a user. I work with colleagues in my department. I rate myself as Exploratory.

    • The enquiring mind – We’re all digital indigenous now
    • Moving beyond the boundaries – wider influences
    • Web 2.0 technologies – understood for personal use, but not yet for teaching – the digital natives are now part of the teaching body
    • The diversity of technology in learning and teaching
    • Emotive and narrative responses to technology – “a hundred flowers blossom”
    • Mashing CPD and staff development together
