Changes on this site

January 7th, 2010 by Graham Attwell

Ok – nothing dramatic. But we are slowly adding to the functionality and features on Wales Wide Web.

Firstly we have updated our PB wiki – accessible through the badge on the right hand side of this page. We are using the wiki to record both work in progress about different themes and ideas and about projects we are working on. We hope the wiki will prove especially useful for those wanting access to source materials around particular topics.

We have also used the Goggle API to provide access to Google translate fort those unable to read Maria’s blog in Greek language. OK – Google translate isn’t perfect. But it does provide a good overview of her blog articles in different languages.

Jo is working at adding easy access to academic papers produced by members of the Pontydysgu team. We set out to do this once before using the BIBTEX standard through CiteULike, However, in practice this turned out too unwieldy. After a lot of thought we have decided to use Scribd. We are planning to embed them on the publications page of the site. In the meantime if you can’t wait you can search for Graham Attwell on Scribd (more papers to go up in the next few days).

And, finally, we are embarking on a long overdue redesign of our projects pages. Pontydysgu takes part in many projects. Our previous page design was not really fit for purpose and we are redesigning the pages, dividing the projects into current and completed past work.

If you have suggestions for how we can further improve the site please do leave us a message.

    News Bites

    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lost their jobs, and 26 per cent have lost internships, while 28 per cent have had their graduate job offer deferred or rescinded. 47 per cent of finalists are considering postgraduate study, and 29 per cent are considering making a career change.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.
