Abstract:

This research report offers an analysis of how teachers could and do use new technologies, and recommendations on how they can be better supported in this, through a literature review and case study visit to Reading College. The report shows what the vocational classroom of the future could look like, and highlights the benefits to the [further education] FE sector of developing and investing in new technologies through a culture of experimentation and collaboration. The report recommends a number of key areas to facilitate better use of technology for teaching and learning: first, embedding a culture of experimentation where teachers are given the chance to develop new methods with learners to understand how it impacts on their learning; secondly, supporting FE professionals and [technology] experts to work together to use technology when developing new techniques and teaching methods; and lastly, enabling the leadership of FE colleges to spearhead and explore new technologies to support the confident use of technology inside, and outside, the classroom.
