This module looks at how to improve the elements of an organisation's digital technology strategy that relate to accessibility and its significance for bringing about change in teaching and learning practice.
This module looks at a broad classification of learning disabilities and the forms of technology that are best suited to overcome the associated challenges to learning.
This module looks at the basic components of personal computing through the use of the various devices, the systems that run on them, setting them up as preferred and keeping them in good order.
Legislation for accessibility changed in a very positive way with The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations (2018). This module looks at how to stay on the right side of these regulations.
This module explores the range of accessibility assistance, from common mainstream software, apps and tools, through to the specialist or bespoke technology for complex individual needs, and its implications for teaching and learning practice.
This module looks at an individual's digital context based on personal access to the appropriate technology, their awareness of it, and the digital skills to make use of them.
This module explores the use of spoken text through devices such as e-readers and eBooks to overcome barriers to learning for a range of learners, not only those with a sight impairment.
The main cause of heightened health risks associated with using technology come from making compromises in the physical arrangements made in accessing devices. They are exacerbated by prolonged periods of concentration that suppresses awareness of time spent in poor posture and without breaks.
This module looks at the impact on teaching strategy of learners who bring their own devices. This has implications for users of assistive technology and for those learners who prefer to work on their own devices.
This module follows on from the module Creating inclusive content: Principles. It shows how the principles from Creating inclusive content: Principles can be applied to create resources that are good for all users.
This module shows some principles of good practice for creating content that meets the needs of learners with a disability or learning disadvantage.
The diversity of learners extends to differences in their levels of digital skills, experience and confidence.
This module looks at ways to ensure that our teaching does not disadvantage those with existing low levels of digital skills.
Digital technologies have a particular value in their ability to be shared over distance and then viewed and worked on at different times.
This allows content and resources to be adapted, improved, questioned, have examples added, have gaps and other incompletions filled, and so on, completed...
Partnerships that bring teachers and learners together to develop digital skills can deliver real benefits to both groups.
This module looks at the practicalities of developing and sustaining such partnership. It pairs with and follows on from the module, Learner-led activity.
This module looks at what is meant by future-proofing content, why it is necessary and why it is increasingly important.
The principles and practice of future-proofing content together with some simple techniques are examined in the paired module Principles and practice of future proofing...
This module looks at how to overcome or find ways around some of the technical compatibility issues you can encounter when searching for resources on the web to use with learners.
This module looks at adapting and editing existing learning materials, your own or resources you found online, for a different learning purpose.
Creating new resources from old can extend the life of learning materials and is a time-efficient approach to meeting the needs of different learners.
The internet is full of information and it’s not all accurate. This module looks at the different types of error to be found, from unintended to deliberately misleading and how to prepare learners to recognise and deal with them.
Adopting digital technologies to collaborate and share practice beyond your own institution will enable you to:
- find out what colleagues in other organisation's in the sector are doing in their teaching.
- share, adapt and adopt good practice and learning objects and resources more...
This module looks at how to combine and mix existing resources to create more relevent content for learning.
It examines how this can be used to enhance the development of your pedagogical practice with EdTech.
It follows on from the module Creating content: adapting and editing.
The web is awash with sources of information and resources to support teaching and learning.
This module looks at ways to organise your search practice.
