Unwrap the 12 apps and be in with a chance to win!Posted: 11 November, 2015
This free 12 day project is aimed at both students and their lecturers.
It’s that time of the year again and the 12 day free award winning The 12 Apps of Christmas project is back! Click here to register to take part this year.
This is the second instalment in the award winning series The 12 Apps of Christmas. This 12 day free online project is aimed at both students and their lecturers. Each morning over 12 weekdays, starting Dec 1st 2015, a page will be released on the website www.dit.ie/the12appsofchristmas that reviews a particular mobile app and explores it in terms of how it could help students personalise their learning. More information on what personalisation means, and how is can benefit student learning, can be found on the student information page. An information page for educators has also been included and here it is explained what tutors and lecturers can do to create the type of environment that provides students with unique opportunities to personalise their learning.
For further information, please take a few moments to watch the introductory video on the website before registering for the project. If you have any questions please contact either Frances Boylan or Trevor Boland of the 12 apps team. There will be a number of competitions run over the 12 days too and there are some great prizes to be won so keep an eye out!
Comments on the daily apps, observations, tips and hints, and resources can all be tweeted to #12appsDIT. We look forward to working with you online in December!
