On the 18th April 2017 staff across delivery and service areas were invited to take part in the Digifair at Harlow College. A range of Digital Leaders and the Digital Team were able to share their practice and new, innovative technologies alongside Neil, and Ben from Trilby TV and Dan from Apple who delivered the next stage in the Colleges vision and plan for development.

The Digifair was all about staff celebrating their progress with The Core 5 over the past academic year. It was clear to see that not only had the staff embraced Notes, Padlet, Showbie, PowerPoint and OneDrive but they had started to look at subject specific apps and learning tools that could continue to improve the teaching and learning within their own delivery area.
Staff were able to share and show the huge developments they have experienced over the last 12 months and were able to share with staff how the learning tools could be adapted and used in any learning environment.
My thanks to the digital leaders who volunteered their services on the day. To Jo Thomson, Paul Wood, Tom Steel, the Trilby Guys for their constant guidance and to Dan Edwards from Apple and Paul Barran from Rapid who brightened up our entrance with the wonderful Pepper and Nao. A final big thank you to Becky, Dave, Sharon, John and Jack who are the fabulous Digital Team here at Harlow College, they make it all happen.
