Learning, Teaching and Skills Resources @ Mimas's insight:

Fancy trying out something fun on a Friday?  The 'Fabulous Frogs App: Splendid and Native' is now available. This superb app has been developed in collaboration with the AR in Education team at Mimas, and the Manchester Museum. The app is aimed at 7-11 years and maps to Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum in England and to the 'responsible citizens' and 'successful learners' capacities of the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence.

 

The app presents a number of opportunities to use AR to understand so much more about the frogs; including species information, frog anatomy, and the frog life cycle.

 

The app has already seen some very positive feedback, with one parent commenting that the app is “Great for kids to learn about nature”

The  Jorum Team headed across to Newcastle last month to attend and present at OER14. Once again it was a superb event and we take a look back and provide our review of our two days below. Back in the office, we are working on moving the Jorum website to Wordpress to allow greater adaptability of our content, and will also provide a much more visually appealing look - focusing on resources.  We are due to release the new site in June, so look out for it.  As always, your views are welcome.


The final AR in the City project meeting took place, and plans are in place to publicise the new app. Work also continues around Mapping Amphibians and Reptiles, working alongside the Manchester Museum.


The Hairdressing Training app is almost ready for final testing, and we have received superb feedback on its potential use via our annual survey.  More details below. 


Happy Reading!

Open Educational Ideas – a New Approach for Open Education

"Open Educational Ideas (OEI) are a new concept addressing motivational barriers to OER (re-)use. OEI aims at creating  early stage collaborations for Open Education. Bringing people together to develop Open Educational Resources (OER) is the simple idea of the concept – creating “emotional ownership” is the main approach to engage and encourage educators."
