Collaborative proposals with local authority and hospital trust groups

Christine Milligan, Garik Markarian, Mary Hamilton and Don Passey were involved in a proposal to the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) to run a small-scale pilot in two areas of Birmingham, which was submitted by Aston Pride, a community development project supported through NDfC funding across a socially-disadvantaged area of Birmingham, exploring the development of a technological network that focused on intergenerational learning supporting elderly people with health issues.

Murray Saunders, Jo Warin, Don Passey, Carolyn Jackson, Colin Rogers, Paul Davies, Linda Pearce and Dee Daglish wrote a proposal to conduct evaluative research on therapeutic interventions in schools, including technological aspects of interventions and their monitoring, which was submitted to the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

Advice through invited meetings with international, EU, commercial and media groups

UNESCO Summit on ICT in compulsory education: UNESCO continues to support an international review of the diffusion, adoption and uses of ICT in compulsory education by teachers and learners. Don Passey was invited as one of 130 international experts to attend a three-day summit in Paris to consider future global plans to support community networks of policy makers, educators and researchers.

'Youth at Risk' is an area of clear current and future concern at EU level. The EC's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) organised an expert workshop in early December 2010 to present and discuss the state of the art on the topic of youth at risk and ICTs to which Don Passey was invited to participate with other academics, practitioners and policy makers from different Directorate-Generals of the EU. For more details: http://is.jrc.ec.europa.eu/pages/EAP/eInclusion.html

Sondra Cuban participated in an EU workshop in 2010 on ESOL and technology with Anusca Ferrari (EC JRC IPTS)

Research work directly undertaken in local authorities, hospital trusts and schools

Don Passey has continued to evaluate the implementation and outcomes of e-practices for learners and teachers in schools across Wolverhampton LA. One of the elements explored how teachers are beginning to handle the deployment and uses of the many forms of innovative and up-to-date technologies that can be accessed in a school.

Gale Parchoma and Maria Zenios are running a project with the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Trust jointly funded by the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Trust, the Technology Transfer Board and the ESRC (following an earlier successful project with the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Trust for £12,000 completed in 2010).

Catherine Fritz, working with Richard Crombie and Rashmi Mukesh, is working with teachers at Queen Elizabeth School, Kirkby Lonsdale, to test in a large-scale randomised controlled trial the relative effectiveness of quizzes as compared with reviews to promote students' learning in chemistry classes.

Keynote presentations to educational policy and practice audiences

Don Passey has continued to evaluate the implementation and outcomes of e-practices for learners and teachers in schools across Wolverhampton LA. A recent report on this was released at BETT 2011 (the major educational technology event for schools in the UK run annually in Olympia, London), with the LA presenting key findings in a seminar organised and sponsored by the technology providers, SMART.

Don Passey was asked by Becta to give a keynote presentation at their final conference in Birmingham recently, to an audience of some 200 national and local policy makers and practitioners, on a nationwide development to enhance parental engagement in education and school practices through the uses of online technologies.

Conference organised

Julie-Ann Sime, in collaboration with DEIS Department of Education Development, Cork Institute of Technology, organised a one-day conference for teachers on Technology Enhanced Learning – postgraduate students were also invited.

 

Involvement with the wider international research community

Presentations at a wide range of international conferences

Working on collaborative proposals and networking activities with colleagues in universities in other countries

One of the major universities in Belgium (KU Leuven), a member of the League of European Research Universities (LERU), led an EC project that involved youth worker mediators in using social networking software with groups of young people who are at risk (in support centres in Denmark, Scotland, Poland and Belgium). From this project they identified a key gap in social networking software provision - there is no software available that is specifically focused for youth work support in fields related to youth at risk. Don Passey was invited, with colleagues from the Computing Department, to join a partnership led by KU Leuven, to propose a 3 year project to explore this area further within the EU FP7 programme. Although not successful, this strand of work is being pursued further.

The British Academy runs a UK-Latin America and the Caribbean Link Programme, providing awards to support a programme of seminars on a topic of mutual interest within the humanities and social sciences. Don Passey and Gale Parchoma led a proposal from Lancaster University with Tom Connelly in the Universidad Chileno Británica de Cultura, Chile, on the topic 'Communities, universities, schools, parents and students: Comparative cultural studies of engagement with educational technologies'. Professor Steve Higgins from Durham University and Professor Alma Harris from the Institute of Education both kindly agreed to act as referees for the submission. Although not successful, the team intends to pursue this area of work further.

Maria Zenios and Gale Parchoma were invited to contribute to an EU bid for a second round STELLAR theme team. The bid was led by Thomas Ryberg of Aalborg University, Denmark. Team members included Maarten de Laat, Open Universiteit Nederland, and Rebecca Ferguson and Gill Clough, Open University, UK. The bid was submitted in January, 2011, and although not successful, the team hopes to pursue ideas generated in a future opportunity.

In 2010 Sondra Cuban was asked to participate in a JRF grant with Stirling University on the impact of the Big Society on libraries, which was unfortunately not successful
Mary Hamilton has worked on a collaboration with the Literacy Research Centre and Department of Management Learning internally; and UBC Canada, IoE London and the OU externally, to develop a proposal to the Canadian Social Science Research Council on the topic of Literacy and the New Media.

Involvement as members and officers of international working groups

Don Passey was elected in early 2011 as vice-chair of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group on Information Technology in Educational Management, chaired by Professor Andreas Breiter from the University of Bremen.
