Notes from Jo Field, University of Wolverhampton

·        Open badges were discussed. You can create badges to award students with achievements and they collect them in a virtual backpack.

·         Another presenter introduced an open access Arts & Humanities index that he created and manages:


·         A school librarian is using two free apps (available on ios and android) with his students which are worth a look (links below):

          1)  Tellagami

          2)   Socrative


·         The room we were in had a “thought wall” which we could write our comments / questions / feedback on.

This would be useful for the purpose of engaging students in skills workshop activities.
