Invited Talk

The role of technology in transforming Higher Education and how schools can engage with HE

Whole Education Annual Conference, Seizing the Agenda: Equipping learners of today to thrive in the world of tomorrow | King's Place, York Way, London N1 | 13th November 2015

How will TEL support students’ learning when teaching support is unavailable? e.g. utilising technology to provide formative assessment when students are practising their skills such as writing.  An example technology is OpenEssayist http://www.open.ac.uk/researchprojects/safesea/ developed by Whitelock et al to help students to give immediate feedback on draft essays to students before they submit assignments.  So the issue for schools is being aware of OpenSource tools that can help their students practise key skills without teacher support.
