Independent Learning Advisor, Theo Kuechel gives an overview of the types of technologies currently available, Music Technologies Lecturer, Adam Richards shows how he and colleagues at Bridgend College, Wales are using Facebook to support teaching and learning and JISC Digital Media Advisor, Tim O’Riordan proposes a novel approach to selecting digital technologies for learning.

  49. 49. Facing reality in a Further Educationcontext – Using Facebook to create learning communities without the cost of a hosted solution
  50. 50. Bridgend College
  51. 51. The FE Context• Constrained resources in an FE context• FE delivery• How Facebook acted as a vehicle for achieving learning that was not possible otherwise
  52. 52. Memphis Trip Page
  53. 53. Why Social Networking?• Access 365 days a year• 24/7• Free• Embedded in their experience• Available on mobile and desktop devices• Direct Interaction and group focus
  54. 54. Social Intrusion• Managed by the tutor administrators, use of closed group• The groups are subject specific, not College based• No personal Facebook interaction – not friending students• Not in their direct interaction - its in group spaces• To date 100% of our students are facebook users
  55. 55. Creative Industry Specific
  56. 56. Better than face to face• Continuous learning outside the college• Enables follow-up discussion from class and Student led research• Options for students who don’t interact as well in face to face contexts
  57. 57. Student benefit The students’ perception has been that the group has improved the range and flexibility of communication and provided an effective hub for communicating and learning between the staff and learners – evidence of support“I found the group page a huge benefit, it enabled me to communicate with tutors and group members, it was a good source to contact members and share ideas”. Danni Kennedy student 2012
  58. 58. Risks and how to address them• Facebook group is part of induction week• Risks were avoided• To date all students have respected the groups• All tutors are group administrators• All students feel part of a unique, specialised environment
