Learning Environments
At the heart of personalisation is the
understanding that learning environments comprise
the totality of factors with which the learners
interact, including people, spaces and resources.
It is an ecology of learning in which both the
learner and their environment respond flexibly to
constant change in interaction with each other.

We have trialled our Gateway through the SPV we
have developed some Revision materials for
delivery to smart phones
The Ultra Mobile PCs which we are using in
Humanities are changing the dynamics for our
learners
They are not as intrusive as other devices, they
encourage discussion and group work
We have recently started to develop learning
units which we are specifically developing for
use on wireless laptops

The move from an assessment-driven, to a

E-portfolios
E-portfolios could allow young people to keep a
full and accurate record of their progression,
building up a rich CV that brings in all aspects
of their life. This could be viewed anytime,
anywhere and given feedback in real time.
E-portfolios have great potential to allow
students to showcase, store and access their
work. They could be used at a job interview to
allow a potential employer to survey a students
work and record of achievement.
