  15. 15. “There are many opportunities for e-learning e.g. an apprentice electrician needs to understand Ohms law - perfect for e-learning. [There are] many very "dry" topics that would be best served delivered in a smart interactive e- learning presentation." Jim Munro, Director,ABSC Group
  16. 16. "When I am convinced that the only way toproperly assess a particular skill is in the workplace and/or through practical demonstration ... Iusually organise a way to watch the personperform the skill.This may be through the person video recordingthemselves, or by live link-up through Skype, ormy personal favourite, live to a group via awebinar." John Radvan, WEA Hunter
  17. 17. “Trades students love technology if they can seea reason for its use. Let them find, play andlearn with automotive, construction, engineeringand volumetric apps!" Tracie Regan, Wide Bay Institute of TAFE
  18. 18. “One reason apprentices became Diesel mechanics wasthey "Were no good with electrical stuff". Teaching thesubject was hard work...Even with the bestlecturers, 10% of the students had to do re-sits oradditional studies because they did not finish their work.I also taught the subject using the support of thecomputers. The result was...- No students needing re-sits- Students finishing in less than 4 days (normally 5 daystudy)- Less teaching and less stress (allowing time to bespent with students who were struggling).” Jim Kesting (previously Heavy Vehicles, TAFE SA)

  26. 26. Kobak Pty Ltd, Flagstaff Hill SAKobak Pty Ltd….is using iPads for WHSrequirements includingcompleting reports verballyand taking photos forevidence of compliancy.
  27. 27. TAFE NSW Riverina Institute….repackaged 3 existing units of competenceundertaken by their Electrotechnologystudents.They were developed in Moodle using a variety of e-learning strategies eg:Power points, screen grabs, quizzes, videos, You-tube and other tools toenhance the learning experiences of students.
  28. 28. SA Plant Operator Training – Lonsdale, SA….adapted their Forklift delivery training intomobile learning for marginalised anddisengaged learners. They developed a ‘Forklift Pre-op procedure’ resource which could be viewed on a mobile phone. They also used QR codes to create a ‘learning trail’ over a real forklift.
  29. 29. MITAC - Major Industries Training Advisory Council ….successfully built an iPhone App for eProfiling.This app allows students to log their weekly cards without having access to acomputer improving the regularity with which they log their information. This alsoallows the RTO and Employer to more accurately track the progress of theapprentice, potentially leading to more timely completion of the apprenticeship.
  30. 30. TAFE NSW North Coast / Essential Energy ….developed an online learning tool comprising the 5 stages applicants may need to progress through to obtain an apprenticeship with an Energy Provider in Australia.They trialled a variety of technologies to provide remote facilitation and ongoingtutorial support, and customise existing employability skills and underpinningnumeracy skills resources for the industry.
