John Woodthorpe (MCT) shares stories from TU100: My Digital Life

TU100 is a module which continues the tradition of radically different modules for which the Technology Faculty was well known. It draws students at foundation level in with the claim 'The future's up for grabs and you can help build it'. Who could resist an offer like that? John covered:

  • Sense & the SenseBoard to teach programming
  • Use of Google Docs to teach online skills, including spreadsheet teaching and use of Google Sites for website development
  • Digital divide - filming and follow-up in Nepal 

John also shared some of the neat stuff that students are filming about their own TU100-enhanced digital lives.

Introduction to Responsive Open Learning Environments (Alex Mikroyannidis and Teresa Connolly, KMi)

The European project ROLE (Responsive Open Learning Environments) provides online tools that enable learners to build their own technology-enhanced learning environment based on their needs and preferences. This workshop introduced participants to these tools and gave them an opportunity to use them for building their personal learning environment.
