‘Innovative Practice with e-Learning’, the JISC guide to embedding mobile and wireless technologies in everyday practice, was launched at ALT-C in September with a competition based around the Effective Practice Planner – a tool for designing and recording short instances of learning activity design which formed part of its sister publication, ‘Effective Practice with e-Learning’.

Judged by John Traxler of Wolverhampton University, the competition’s first prize - an Acer® PDA with Pocket PC and complete navigation system - was awarded to David Sugden of Village e-Learning. David, formerly e-Learning Manager at Dewsbury College of Further and Higher Education, described the use of videos captured on mobile phones and beamed to a tablet PC for projection on to a screen for whole-class discussion as part of an NVQ Level 2 class. The second prize of a USB drive with voice recording capability went to the Stockton Riverside College project team who pioneered the use of PDAs in the support of dyslexic learners.

The ‘Innovative Practice with e-Learning’ CD-Rom, which includes a video and written case study on the use of PDAs in mobile learning and teaching at Dewsbury College, Thomas Danby College and Bishop Burton College, can now be found online at www.elearning.ac.uk/innoprac. A report from Stockton Riverside College project ‘Widening access with new technologies’ is available on the TechDis website at www.techdis.ac.uk/resources/files/StocktonRiversideReport.doc

Copies of ‘Innovative Practice with e-Learning’ have now been mailed out to all HEIs, FE colleges in Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland and HEFCE-funded FE colleges in England. Contact info@jisc.ac.uk for further information, or for additional copies. A PDF of the full guide can also be downloaded from http://www.jisc.ac.uk/eli_practice.html
