E-Guides sharing and sharpening Awards

The E-Guides programme was started in 2003, and initially worked with people working in the ACL sector before later expanding into other areas of post 16 education. In that time over 3000 E-Guides have been trained, who have then cascaded and supported colleagues within their organisations in the use of various forms of technology in learning. Unfortunately like many other national programmes this no longer runs, but many of the E-Guides are working away in their organisations trying to make a difference, often without formal recognition or time allocation, and often without due thanks.

I am pleased that NIACE is still trying to recognise the work of these people with an annual award – details of which can be found at http://www.niace.org.uk/current-work/the-e-guides-sharing-and-sharpening-award-2011

Even though the money for these programmes has dried up, and the current Government don’t seem to be recognising the importance or value of learning technology, it is important that the people who are enthusiastic about this area of work do continue to plug away at trying to make a difference and trying to make change happen.
