Lambeth Adult Learning Service: Electronic gathering of evidence of achievement on non-accredited programmes

Principal focus of the project

The project's main focus was to develop learners' skills in using digital technology to record their achievements and progress, to inspire learning through technology, and to simplify the gathering of achievement evidence across subject sectors. The project used two non-accredited courses for the pilot study, with all learning records, targets, and evidence gathered and stored using various digital technologies. Learners were provided with USB drives to store their work. The staff running the project provided tutors with mentoring, and monitored the progress through review meetings.

Areas of learning
What is this about and what were the main findings?

Learners were enthusiastic in using technology to enhance their learning and supported each other in its application. Tutors also saw benefits, providing opportunities to learn new operational skills, and to apply the technologies to support learners' differing learning styles and needs. Compilation, storage, and accessing learners' records became easier through digital technology. The project enabled the providers to save time and resources when compiling, recording, and accessing learning records. Data was gathered from participants/observers and interviews/surveys.
