Event Details

Background and aim

How is digital technology affecting the study skills needs of our learners? Are students more easily distracted? Do they learn differently these days? Do they struggle to read anything longer than a Twitter message or Facebook post?

This workshop reviews the impact of digital technology on the way we all read, write and communicate and suggests that an awareness of the challenges it presents can enable teachers to create an engaging and interactive ‘digital’ classroom and yet still develop the study skills learners need for wider success at college and at work.


Participants will have an opportunity to

  • discuss the impact of digital technology on learners’ study skills
  • explore ways of supporting learners to read and research more effectively online
  • evaluate a range of digital tools that teachers can use to engage learners and check progress
  • how teachers can use technology to support with writing
  • review different digital tools to create blended learning resources and promote learner autonomy

Intended audience

  • teachers, vocational trainers and learning support assistants in the FE and Skills sector


The facilitator: Bob Read is the ETF Regional Specialist Lead for English. He has over thirty years’ experience of teaching English in schools and Further Education.


In March 2016 Bob set up ACER’s ETF-funded Professional Exchange Network - ‘Using Digital Technology in English Teaching’.
