Adult literacy in our society and thoughts on how educators can implement small changes in health, family, and prisons to empower our learners and make a real change in our society

Mature students studying at university face more challenges than those straight out of school or college. Juggling work and caring responsibilities while studying after time out of the education system can be a difficult experience, but there are many things that educators can do to support them. This is Part One of a two-part blog post that explores the experiences and opinions of two mature students studying at university and provides advice to educators who may also be supervising older learners.

Third spaces as "out-of-place” spaces cause offset and edge effects. They offer the possibility of feeding a critical analysis on the notion of "third" as well as that of "place" in a relationship to the economy, territory, work and governance. They facilitate cross-fertilization and dissemination of knowledge using a space-based practice by imagining other development scenarios that could be discussed in a "popular" dimension (popular centrality, popular economy, popular education).

ICT skills for Educators

Computing and IT is required by all businesses and jobs in today’s world. Information and Communication technology (ICT) has the potentialict_3 to transform teaching and learning processes. According to a recent study in OECD countries, students are more sophisticated in their use of technology than teachers; an inherent discrepancy between student knowledge and usage of ICTs with the abilities of teacher to use ICTs. This suggest that teacher inexperience and skill deficiencies may often be a fundamental factor which prevents the effectiveness of ICT use in education. The same study reveals that the most effective uses of ICT are those in which the teacher, aided by ICTs, may challenge understanding and thinking of pupils, and this can be done through whole-class discussions and/or individual/small group workshops using ICTs. Nowadays, it is widely accepted that the use of ICTs should not aim at completely transforming teacher practices in and of itself but rather enabling and supporting the move from traditional ‘teacher-centric’ teaching styles to more ‘learner-centric’ methods. In other words, making each one of the students active and fully engaged. The ‘ICT skills for Educators’ course is designed to enable participants to improve their teaching practices with the use of specific ICT tools, such as smart boards, web conferencing and webinars, among others, thus, creating a ‘learner-centric’ classroom. This is an ideal course for all teachers, educators & trainers interested in continuing professional development (CPD).

The 10 Prisons Project has released briefings and accompanying resources that aim to reduce substance misuse and violence in prisons by ensuring that prisoners are able to maintain good relationships with their families and other important people. The briefings and resources will be valuable to anyone working with prisoners and their families.

One year ago the De Facto team started a unique and ambitious project - to define a framework, a new playing field, of mis- and disinformation and their occurence, role and function in education and training contexts.

We have now built this robust framework where we explore, place and connect content, domains and relationships.

Tinkering creates a bridging point between a learner’s personal interests and experiences and a broad range of possible learning outcomes. It offers valuable opportunities to engage all students in STEM and fosters a more inclusive STEM education. In this way, it is very much aligned with a Science Capital Teaching Approach: fundamentally, it is a highly personalised pedagogy, which allows the learner to follow their own interests and set their own goals.

The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has launched a toolkit that can be used to utilise students’ digital capabilities to support teaching, learning and assessment. Both the toolkit and a report that details the researcher’s findings can be downloaded from the ETF Excellence Gateway website.
