Maria Miller MP officially opened the doors to the new EV Training Centre on Friday 23 October.
Sky Caves, a Learning Technology Apprentice at Basingstoke College of Technology, was recently invited as a guest on Pivotal Education's podcast to talk about how BCoT uses technology to improve learner engagement in the classroom.
A key member of BCoT's in-house digital team, BCoT Digital, Sky and the team curate, research, train and assist with the implementation of digital tools throughout the college.
"Education technology should be used as an aid, not a replacement. It can be a great time-saver. We work a lot with video resources which can free up teacher time for 1-to-1 interaction and use technology to help differentiate for different learners. Some teachers need more help than others to integrate technology into their practice and that’s why it’s really important to have teams like ours to help. We help guide teachers with what works and why it works – rather than just throwing masses of technology and resources at them."
