Given the interest in Pete Read’s session on using Social Media in Community Learning at the Teaching and Learning Conference in September, we have invited Pete back to lead a hands-on workshop with the following objectives:
- To explore how social media can be used to extend the classroom
- To be aware of safe-guarding learners online
- To find out about some tools for publishing content into the Google circle
- To create Gmail and Google + groups
- To create circles and groups and to post content
- To create a Google + group for community tutors to join
- For tutors to be able to lead their own learners through the above activities
This will be followed by lunch, provided by Burton and South Derbyshire College, to give tutors the chance to network face-to-face!

Feeling bamboozled? Do you need a refresher on Assessment? We need to be doing effective assessment in order to give effective feedback to learners. How can we do this without subjecting learners to a stream of tests? Assessment has become higher priority for Ofsted since the changes to the Common Inspection Framework in September 2012. How can ILT help? For a collection of resources to support tutors use of assessment including useful weblinks, click here.
