On my list of things to explore more with my students next year is how they engage with online portals, Blackboard and/or Pebblepad, using their mobile devices and applications.
Do you know about these? Are you using them? It would be great to hear your experiences. (Apologies- I’ve only put the iOS links so far).

On the theme of mobile technologies do you know what BYOD stands for?
Defining ‘bring your own’ (BYO)
“ ‘Bring your own’ is the term used to describe the use of personal devices, services, data, apps and software in institutional settings. Many institutions manage this through a policy or set of policies” (http://www.jisc.ac.uk/guides/enhancing-the-digital-student-experience/develop-coherent-byo-policies )
A project will shortly be launched using Pinterest to collaboratively create a list of apps useful for teaching and learning- details to follow.
