John Sumpter explores how education can be enhanced by the appropriate and seamless integration of technologies such as Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality that many are unaware can be used in education today. John also reflects on his findings at the UA Reloaded conference in Germany.
Esther reflects on how she learned to teach without speaking and what that meant for her practice as a learning technologist.
With such rapid development in technology and limited resources in education, it’s hard for leaders to know which innovations in technology are likely to succeed and potentially transform learning, professional practice and the effectiveness of their institution. Looking forward to this year’s Jisc Digital Leaders programme, Chris gives some simple guidance on identifying the projects that are likely to make a difference.
Chris has recently been discussing the expectation of new students about the use of technology in learning.

Chris reflects on his own kids’ experiences and what they might have to teach us about developing a positive digital student experience.
