Fareham College’s Gaming and Computing Department has been given a prestigious award in recognition of their technology festival, Fareham Byte.
They were given a Hi5 E-learning Award which recognises the very best practice in technology-enhanced learning. Fareham Byte is a one-day new technology, video game and computer science festival, where primary and secondary school pupils are invited to Fareham College to join in activities designed and run by students at the College. Last year's event hosted over 200 pupils, with activities including animation workshops, lego mindstorm robots, DJ's, digital art and special guests.
The judges commended the event for promoting gaming and computing to a wider audience in an engaging and interactive way. The awards are run by JISC which provides guidance and advice for educators promoting e-learning and new technology in schools, colleges and universities. Now in its fifth year, the Hi5 ceremony has become one of the most important dates in the calendar; where South East learning providers come together to celebrate innovative e-learning.
Stephan Caspar, Head of Gaming & Computing said: “This is a fantastic endorsement of the gaming and computing courses at Fareham College. We have updated our curriculum to make sure students are learning skills that will prepare them for the huge diversity of roles within the IT, computing and gaming sector.”
