Learning and Teaching Hardware

22 07 2010

This morning I met with Penny Burden, Learning and Teaching Developer at the University for the Creative Arts. In her previous role as Head of Skills and Personal Development at the University of Surrey she was responsible for setting up SPLASH, the Student Personal Learning and Study Hub. We discussed some of the hardware that was used in this area such as: Sympodium computers (now called SMART Podium interactive pen displays), which let you write on the screen and also project to a screen behind you; and a wall covered in dry-erase technology i.e. like a giant whiteboard.

Penny advised me to look at what has been done at the University of Sheffield’s Centre for Inquiry-based Learning in the Arts and Social Sciences (CILASS). At the University of Sheffield they use huddleboards (lightweight whiteboards) to “…record discussions, plan activities and map out knowledge.” The boards can then be placed underneath a CopyCam which will take a digital picture that can be saved and imported into a PowerPoint or used elsewhere.

Penny also kindly filled in my questionnaire.
