Mobility in Educationtimber.jpg
Retention and training of construction trades suffers from multiple issues that can be solved with mobile solutions. In addition the buoyancy of Victoria during the GFC continues to put pressure on the demand for construction workers. How is Box Hill Institute tackling this issue?
Made possible through the National VET E-learning Strategy funding, Pauline Farrell will discuss at how Box Hill Institute is developing content and assessment activities for both iPads and Android devices. These devices will also allow the capture of informal learning that can be formalised through the design of better mobile delivery and assessment tools and strategies.
With the successful completion of the Hand Tools for Hand Devices project, Box Hill Institute has embarked on a significant Mobility in Education initiative. Five of their Teaching Centres have now deployed iPad's within targeted courses. Their short term strategy has been to design and develop templates that their team can use for rapid deployment and long term is to develop these templates for the teachers to be able to use themselves.
Pauline Farrell is the Executive Manager of Blended eLearning Solutions (BeLS) at Box Hill Institute. Pauline project managed the GPS Learning Pathways, Student Web project, Mobility in Education Project, Video Collaborate and Individualized Learning project which have all created significant change within the organisation.
Pauline has won numerous awards and fellowships including the TRIP Fellowship, PhD scholarship, SARC leadership award (2008) and Innovations Award (2008 and 2009). BeLS has won Team of the Year two years in a row, shortlisted three times for the Victorian Training Awards, shortlisted seven times over five years in the eLearning Industry Excellence Awards and won twice.

In this presentation Steven McMahon will highlight some of the current technologies available and used in Canberra Institute of Technology in the areas of Metal Fabrication, Automotive, and Plumbing. The use of an electronic attendance and assessment tool that captures all of the training and assessment for students, this is a key piece of evidence for ASQA auditing processes. This presentation will include the use of an interactive board that is used in a practical workshop environment and you will be able to experience the role of a student.
