Sounds of the Bazaar LIVE from Educamp

April 14th, 2009 by Graham Attwell

The coming weekend sees the third Educamp conference at Ilmenau in Germany. The Barcamp type conference will focus on Corporate Learning 2.0 and E-learning 2.0 in schools or universities including the use of e-portfolios, digital games and virtual worlds in education or the trends of mobile and micro-learning.

In line with the idea of a BarCamp, everyone is invited to propose their own topics for discussion.

Ilmenau is not the easiest place to get to! And there are many great events being held at the moment. But, if you cannot attend in person, ‘Sounds of the Bazaar’ will be broadcasting a live radio programme from the conference on Saturday 18 April at 1200 Central European Summer Time, 11.00 BST. I’m not quite sure who will be on the programme yet (after all it is a barcamp) but I am sure it is going to be a lot of fun. Helen Keegan will be cohosting the programme, Cristina Costa will be in the chatroom and Dirk Stieglitz will be testing out our fabulous new mixing deck and the two new wireless microphones!

To listen to the programme just click here and the stream will open in your MP3 player of choice. And of course we will release the podcast of the programme as soon as we can.

    News from 1994

    This is from a Tweet. In 1994 Stephen Heppell wrote in something called SCET” “Teachers are fundamental to this. They are professionals of considerable calibre. They are skilled at observing their students’ capability and progressing it. They are creative and imaginative but the curriculum must give them space and opportunity to explore the new potential for learning that technology offers.” Nothing changes!

    Graduate Jobs

    As reported by WONKHE, a survey of 1,200 final year students conducted by Prospects in the UK found that 29 per cent have lost their jobs, and 26 per cent have lost internships, while 28 per cent have had their graduate job offer deferred or rescinded. 47 per cent of finalists are considering postgraduate study, and 29 per cent are considering making a career change. Not surprisingly, the majority feel negative about their future careers, with 83 per cent reporting a loss of motivation and 82 per cent saying they feel disconnected from employers

    Post-Covid ed-tech strategy

    The UK Ufi VocTech Trust are supporting the Association of Colleges to ensure colleges are supported to collectively overcome challenges to delivering online provision at scale. Over the course of the next few months, AoC will carry out research into colleges’ current capacity to enable high quality distance learning. Findings from the research will be used to create a post-Covid ed-tech strategy for the college sector.

    With colleges closed for most face-to-face delivery and almost 100% of provision now being delivered online, the Ufi says, learners will require online content and services that are sustainable, collective and accessible. To ensure no one is disadvantaged or left behind due to the crisis, this important work will contribute to supporting businesses to transform and upskilling and reskilling those out of work or furloughed.


    The European Commission has published an annual report of the Erasmus+ programme in 2018. During that time the programme funded more than 23,500 projects and supported the mobility of over 850,00 students, of which 28,247 were involved in UK higher education projects, though only one third of these were UK students studying abroad while the remainder were EU students studying in the UK. The UK also sent 3,439 HE staff to teach or train abroad and received 4,970 staff from elsewhere in the EU.
