“On the first day of Christmas, I downloaded an app…”
Overwhelmed by the range of apps for teaching and learning to be found online? Help is at hand, with the Twelve Apps of Christmas.
There are some fantastic tools and resources out there – but how do you find them? And how do you use them? This year, the helpful elves of Learning Resources are coming to your rescue, with Twelve Apps of Christmas!
Twelve Apps of Christmas is a fun, free, and simple online course, run through Blackboard Open Education, and tailored to the needs of staff here at Regent’s University London.
Running every weekday from Thursday 4th to Friday 19th December, Twelve Apps of Christmas is like an advent calendar of learning!
Each day we will present a different educational app, explain how it can benefit you, and show you how to download it. There will be a short and fun task (no more than ten minutes) to get you using each app, with a chance to learn about it in more depth in your own time and at your own pace.
On each morning of the twelve days of the programme, we will publish a post with the day’s task, so that you can work through it whenever you have ten minutes spare in the day.
Each post will help you learn about that day’s app, together with suggestions on how to use it with your students, and how it might work effectively for you in your professional context.
After the live programme, the materials will be left up here for you to refer back to later, or to catch up in your own time.
