Event Details

On the 3rd July, South Essex College, the lead partner for The Learning Consortium which is commissioned and funded by The Education and Training Foundation, will be hosting the annual Eastern region e-Fair at our new campus in Grays. The theme for the event is digital curriculum design. The recommendations of the FELTAG report have highlighted that FE and Skills providers need to be planning and implementing innovative models of delivery using technology. Therefore, the purpose of this event is to highlight examples and strategies for practitioners of how this can be achieved.

The event is free to attend for all FE and Skills providers in the Eastern region. There will be a range of key speakers (more info below) as well as workshops delivered by colleagues from the sector. There will also be colleagues showcasing their good practice in the use of learning technology in our Show and Tell area.

Key Speakers

Bryan Mathers – Think Out Loud club 

Bryan is a learning technology guru who in part is an advisor to City & Guilds on embedding technology into learning design and is a lead support for the Think Out Loud club.  The club brings together other evangelists who share successes and pain to support each other on the Further Education sector’s journey to becoming more digital. In addition to this Bryan is heavily involved in another venture – Wapisasa.


Wapisasa is a digital agency – but probably not like any you may have seen before. For a start, Wapisasa is a non-profit organisation (Community Interest Company) focused on the development of young people (Rookies) with aptitude, creativity and enthusiasm. We use Mozilla Open Badges to map out a personalised pathway, and to recognise their learning and development. Each week, one day is set aside for self-directed interest-led learning, in the form of a Maker Day. 

Stephen Heppell

Stephen is a leading voice on the role of ICT in learning and is Professor of New Media Environments at the Centre for Excellence in Media Practice. He leads pedagogic research at the Centre and supervises PhD students. Previously, Stephen spent around a quarter of a century building Ultralab, which established an exceptional, unique, reputation as a world leading learning technology research centre. He later went on to head his own policy, research and practice consultancy which advises governments and national agencies throughout the world on the strategic development of ICT (
