The increasing pressure on further education (FE) to deliver high quality learning with reduced budgets and support prompts us to consider how technology can help us achieve more with less.
Ever more intuitive technologies continue to emerge that people incorporate into their everyday lives with little or no training – for example, they use smartphone applications (apps) to stay up to date, and overcome distance to interact with friends and relatives using internet voice and video calls.
The task is to explore how we can harness the opportunities that these new technologies bring to address some of the challenges facing FE, and how we can support staff and learners to use their technological proficiency in their learning. The projects featured in this publication sought innovative ways of using technology to enhance learning; they aimed to engage learners and help them achieve their goals, and to help providers deliver high-quality learning efficiently.
