Development sessions on innovative educational technologies

The Education Innovation Centre, UWE Bristol is offering free EDD (Explore, Discover, Discuss) development sessions for teachers in schools and further education colleges.

Each (free) afternoon includes the following topics:

Web conferencing and education

We’ll look at how web conferencing and other technologies are being used to aid collaboration; create virtual classrooms; and build interactive learning experiences that push beyond the limits of the traditional classroom.

Games and learning

What do we mean by terms such as gamification and game-based learning? How can we apply game elements to education? We’ll look at some examples – plus the opportunities and challenges such approaches present.

3D immersive technology

A look at immersive visual environments, particularly virtual worlds, and how they are being used to aid learning. We’ll explore how the sensation of ‘being there’ can be best utilised by educators wanting to develop learning materials and activities.

Plus you’ll be able to experience immersive environments in virtual worlds and try out the Oculus Rift – as well as the Epson augmented reality glasses.

The afternoons provide a a space to explore, discover, and discuss how technology can co-evolve with pedagogy to enhance the student experience.
