Connecting IT to Learning

At the recent BITPart and Burngreave Community Learning Campaign event, Sacha Bedding from the Stockton International Family Centre spoke of their success in increasing access to computers within a diverse community, and the hugely varied benefits it brought to people’s education, work, creative and social lives. Sheffield College speakers talked of the recent successes of students doing ‘on-line’ GCSE English courses they’d been running.

BITPart presented their work on the Burngreave Community Wireless Network, and information about IT training. During discussions of future plans, people called for wider access to IT and the internet in a range of settings including homes, and were supportive of plans for a major centre in the Vestry Hall.
