360 video workshop in Florence

Learning and Teaching event

This week (February, 2020) our digital champions in the University of Hull visited Florence in Italy to participate in the first Learning and Teaching event of the SEPA360 project (Supporting Educators Pedagogical Activities with 360 video). The event brought together academics and researchers from the University of Hull (UK), the University of Florence (Italy), the University of Thessaloniki (Greece) and PXL College, Belgium , the four University partners in a new Erasmus+ Key Action 2 project led by Professor Kevin Burden from the University of Hull.

The event was organised to support newcomers, unfamiliar with the opportunities afforded by 360 video, to learn how to use this new technology to create new and exciting 360 videos to support their students’ learning. The aim of the project is to demonstrate how the use of 360 video can support students to learn more effectively, particularly in new or unfamiliar contexts. In this respect our digital champions are drawn from a diverse range of different disciplines and academic backgrounds.

Our digital champions

During this three day event our digital champions were set the task to design and develop their own 360 video learning scenario which including making a video outside in Florence itself. One example, which captures many of the potential affordances of the technology, was created by Dr. Chris Skinner who investigated the catastrophic flooding of Florence in 1966. You can see his finished video here

Associate Partner colleges

Although we could not accommodate all of our partner colleges in this particular workshop, each of the colleges was named in the application for funding and each is an Associate Partner in the project. We anticipate that during the course of this three year project our associate partners and more colleagues in the University of Hull itself, will grasp the many opportunities offered to learn about and use this innovative technology to support their students. To start this process the Digital Technologies Network is organising a workshop event on 5th June, 2020 where we will showcase some of the examples from Florence and start to consider how e build greater capacity and capability in both the colleges and university.

Missed our 2019 Conference? Catch up here..

If you missed our fantastic conference on Frameworks for Evaluation, you can catch up on our keynote from Wouter Hustinx, (Head of an Expertise Centre on Educational Innovation at PXL University of Applied Sciences and Arts (Belgium) on Using the ‘Digicomp Framework’ EU project, a ‘Framework for Evaluation’ of the professional development of teachers in the use of technologies in learning and teaching: a focus on practice and what difference has it made, as well as learning gains and learner progression.

You can watch our video presentation on ‘Digital Competence for FE and HE staff and the impact digital interventions have on students’ from Vikki Liogier, (Head of learning Technologies, Education & Training Foundation).

DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES NETWORK CONFERENCE 5 June 2019: ‘FRAMEWORK FOR EVALUATION’

Our conference programme is now available – looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday

Outline of the conference content
The Conference theme is the evaluation of teaching and learning using digital technologies and assessment of the impact on teaching and student learning, practice and retention.

The Keynote speaker:Wouter Hustinx, Head of an Expertise Centre on Educational Innovation at PXL University of Applied Sciences and Arts (Belgium).
Using the ‘Digicomp Framework’  EU project, a ‘Framework for Evaluation’ of the professional development of teachers in the use of technologies in learning and teaching: a focus on practice and what difference has it made, as well as learning gains and learner progression.
In his keynote, Wouter will present two practice-oriented cases, founded on theoretical models. The first case relates to the blended learning-policy at PXL, which incorporates rubric assessment and collegial peer reviews. The second case relates to professional development of HE-teachers in Ecuador and Cambodia via a blended learning and a design-based research approach.

In the afternoon there will be a video presentation:
‘Digital Competence for FE and HE staff and the impact digital interventions have on students’.  Vikki Liogier, Head of learning Technologies, Education & Training Foundation.
NB.  You can follow up on the presentation with discussion and group activities at your leisure from the ‘Enhance Digital Teaching Platform and the Digital Teaching Professional Framework’. https://www.et-foundation.co.uk/supporting/support-practitioners/edtech-support/enhance-digital-teaching-platform/

In the second part of the morning and the afternoon there will be good practice/workshop sessions delivered by colleagues from the Digital Technologies Network.

360 digital video

The network has chosen to investigate the use and application of 360 degree video during the academic year 2018-2019. A number of colleges and the University itself have explored the potential benefits of using 360 degree video across a range of subject areas that include teacher training, construction, sports science, animal husbandry, library studies, art. This year we plan to explore the technology in more detail as each partner identifies a specific use and potential application. 

'Digital Spring' Event: March 5th – 9th, 2018

 

The network’s annual Digital Spring event returns in March 2018, with a planned series of professional development events to inspire and engage practitioners in Further and Higher Education.

This year all of the events will be scheduled as live events, broadcast through webinars and other formats. At the moment the final programme is still under construction, but we anticipate it will include something for everybody including:

  • Using Google Hangouts in Teaching at Doncaster College: Awareness of some of the different uses that have been employed at Doncaster College.
  • Basic knowledge of how to create and record a Google Hangout
  • e-Learning don’t byte: East Riding College: Small short successive sessions on some of the e-learning tools East Riding College uses to engage learners in their studies.
  • ‘Making learning interactive’: How to use technologies to get your students to engage more actively in and out of class (Hull College)
  • Using Augmented reality in sport (RNN College): Delegates will know how the Sports team have used augmented reality to make sessions more interactive, engaging and relevant for learners.

These are just a few of the many taster events and seminars we plan to run during ‘Digital Spring, 2018’. Watch this space for further news

2017 Annual Conference: 'Preparing 21st Century Educators'

On 21 June 2017 three organisations engaged in the development, delivery and research into the use of mobile and digital technologies in teaching, learning and assessment, will come together to deliver an exciting and ambitious event the ‘Preparing 21C Educators Conference’.  The event will take place from 9.00am to 4.00pm at the University of Hull

The three organisations comprise the Digital Technologies Network (University of Hull and 10 partner colleges), the MTTEP Erasmus Project and the Association for Information Technology in Teacher Education (ITTE).  These three groups have come together to share good practice in the use of technologies in teaching, teacher/lecturer training and to disseminate research which has been undertaken, including working across three sectors of education, in schools, FE colleges and Higher Education. To see the programme click here (Programme for event (provisional)

The event will commence with prestigious keynote speakers at the start of the morning and the afternoon sessions respectively:

Lord Jim Knight (TES Chief Education Advisor), who is a patron of the Association of Information Technology in Teacher Education.

 

Bob Harrison, Director and Founder of Support for Education, Training (SET) and consultancy needs. Currently the Chair of the Teaching Schools New Technology Advisory Board, a HE/Industry/Schools/DfE/NCTL group.

The workshop sessions available to delegates will be delivered in three 40 minute sessions during the day and will be either delivered in a 40 minute slot, or in two 20 minute slots.  The wide range of workshop sessions will enable colleagues to select a mixed, or focused set of activities including good practice and interactive sessions, or research undertaken in use of technologies across sectors.
