Tech is best used as a tool to support the human.

2021 has already been a challenging time for teachers and trainers.

Technology will never fully replace teachers and trainers – tech is best used as a tool to support the human - but in the current situation we have all been forced to utilise tech for almost every interaction, often learning on the hoof and adapting as we go.

As we adjust to this latest lockdown we thought it would be useful to share again some of the free resources for educators that Ufi have supported & developed, with the aim to support teachers & trainers to use tech effectively in their practice.

Please feel welcome to forward or share this with anyone you know who might find this useful.

Blended Learning Essentials is a Ufi-supported resource for educators that introduces the basic principles of delivering combined face-to-face and online learning experiences.

Hosted on Future Learn, this course is designed to help anyone who teaches to understand the benefits of blended learning. You will find out how to use technology more effectively to support your learners, and understand how to better embed it in your classroom.
