Computer Tutors – You're Not Alone!

If you're an IT tutor, I'm sure there are times when you want to ask someone’s advice about something to do with your teaching. And wouldn't it be great if there was someone to hand who not only understood your situation, but would also share their resources, answer your questions and give you free advice and support?

Well there is. Computer tutors – you're not alone!

Here in the UK we have a community of several thousand IT tutors who already help and support each other online. They use the ComputerTutors website to do this. Tutors from all areas of post 16 education provide a network of support by using discussion boards to:

  • exchange ideas about how several different IT courses can best be delivered;
  • discuss things to with their IT syllabi;
  • share resources such as worksheets, schemes of work and student manuals
The ComputerTutors community has individual discussion groups for many of the IT qualifications that are delivered in adult and community learning. This includes:

  • The CLAIT suite of qualifications
  • ECDL
  • E-Citizens
  • Enabling Learning
  • MOS
There are others too - you can see the full list here.

It costs absolutely nothing to join and it’s also a great way to stay connected with others who work in the same curriculum area. Of course, the more tutors who participate in the discussions and share resources, the more useful the site is for everyone too!

Teaching adults, especially out in the community, can sometimes feel quite isolated making it's really useful to have this kind of peer support. So why not help a tutor you know? If you know of anyone who teaches IT, forward this article on to them by clicking the envelope at the bottom of this post. Our adult and community learning tutors do a grand job and it costs nothing to let a tutor know that even if sometimes it seems like it - they're not alone!
