This is an accessible, practical and up to date book specifically targeted at FE and post-16 teachers, whatever their academic or vocational specialism. Important changes in policy, landscape and technology itself mean that digital capability is key for learners, no matter what subject they study. Tutors should therefore develop their digital skills as a basic competence in order to harness current digital tools, apps and techniques to the pedagogy of teaching FE.
The book provides readers with the knowledge and skills required to source learning technology tools, objects and content and to convert traditional learning and teaching resources into engaging and interactive online material. It is designed around each aspect of the teaching and training cycle - identifying needs, planning and designing, delivering and facilitating, assessing and evaluating - and includes: when to use learning technology/e-learning; barriers to implementing digital learning; the importance of digital literacy skills; and ways of keeping up to date and CPD.
