CultureShift: Embedding technology in staff and student practice

LEAD ORGANISATION

Blackburn College

OVERVIEW

This project has supported a cross-college CultureShift to embed learning technology within staff and student practice through the development of:

  • ‘DigiPals’: staff and students who are recruited to work with their peers as learning technology champions;
  • LearningWheels: Simple graphic devices that model how specific learning technologies, such as Twitter, can enhance learning delivery.

Read the final report to discover how Blackburn have used these approaches to create a robust and flexible digital environment that has increased efficiency and enhanced student engagement and achievement.

USE THESE RESOURCES TO LEARN HOW TO
  • Establish an effective network of peer-to-peer support to develop skills and confidence in using learning technologies;
  • Apply technology in collaborative, exciting and accessible ways within teaching and learning;
  • Discover additional teaching and learning resources online.

“My ‘DigiPal’ was wonderful and supportive. I now have more knowledge of what’s available and feel confident in assessing the needs of the individual student and matching them to appropriate technology that will enhance their learning.”
