PebblePad (personal learning space) demo

Colin Dalziel from PebblePad will be talking about this system on Monday 5th March at 3.00pm in Room 1 of the Enterprise Zone in the Stirling campus library.


PebblePad is a dedicated learning system designed to meet the needs of higher education. It is a Personal Learning Space being used in learning contexts as diverse as colleges, universities and professional bodies; by learners, teachers and assessors; for Personal Development, Professional Development and Learning and Teaching


PebblePad brings together two unique products, Pebble+ and ATLAS, to create an environment that provides learners with a secure private area whilst providing teachers with a space to support learning and manage assessment processes.


Users can upload any safe file type or they create records by entering information into a range of structured and supportive templates. Users can choose from a range of generic inbuilt templates or can use templates created by peers or tutors to support a particular purpose. Importantly users can also create and share their own template designs using a brilliantly simple drag and drop method that mirrors the process used for creating other items like webfolios, blogs and collections.


The flexibility of the template builder means that there are endless possible uses -from learners creating their own reflective models, to teachers creating templates for complex experiments, procedures or placement preparation. Additionally the template builder can be used to structure formal frameworks of competences, capabilities, skills and qualities such as professional standards or graduate attributes.
