Shhhh: don't mention Technology Enhanced Learning!

I have just seen the updated policies and planned learner inductions for our college and noticed that there is very little mention of technology in a positive sense.

Thankfully the policies and planned activities are shared using technology to communicate them(Social Networking?) and I have used the available comment feature to highlight this omission.

Question... do we need (more) teacher and learner involvement in the development of policies and planned activities such as Induction? Could a Facebook page and surveys be part of the answer :-) to improve learner and tutor voice as well as another opportunity to become more comfortable with the use of Social Networking?

Random thought: colleges are big ships, but if you lean on the tiller hard enough it will eventually turn.
