#Readers are leaders: Developing reading habits via digital literature

James Brabin (Digital and Blended Learning Champion for Wigan and Leigh College) talks about co-ordinating different e-platforms that are designed to promote and develop digital literacy skills. Some of the strategies are curriculum specific, whilst others have a general pedagogy focus.

MS Office – Digital Skill development

In this video, Rhiannon Hayes from Wigan and Leigh College explains how Microsoft Learn is up-skilling staff.

As one of the most commonly used software packages across the globe, employers in a variety of industries expect candidates to be proficient in the use of Microsoft Office and it’s related applications. These technologies are deployed within the college environment, but a number of skills gaps exist amongst learners when using key software such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft Excel. This supported experiment seeks to identify the impact of digital skills development relating to the Microsoft Office suite of applications, in relation to developing learner confidence, employability and quality of work produced.
