What is it?
Pebblepad is a platform that supports the creation of personal spaces in which students can create resources such as pages, collections, learning journals, activity logs, blogs, workbooks, templates as well as collect and share evidence of their progress with their tutors.
How is it used?
It consists of two components: Peeble + and ATLAS.
Pebble+ is an online personal learning space in which users can created different types of digital artefacts (e.g. blogs, files, webfolios, etc.), grouping those artefacts into collections to be shared with peers and tutors.
ATLAS is the online space that supports institutional teaching, learning and assessment. ATLAS is used to design assessment workflows in which tutors can assess and provide feedback to the collections of artefacts submitted students.
Templates can be created by tutors for learners to use and submit for their feedback. Also, there are options to release content at set time, run similarity checks, and give feedback, as well as for students to see each others’ work.
Why use it?
- Personalised feedback to increase student engagement, performance, and retention.
- It supports many different types of online interactions between students and tutors so that assessment and feedback processes can be built as a two-way dialogue in which students can also reply to their tutor’s feedback.
- It’s very flexible and offers a variety of digital formats.
- It supports different types of assessment, including multimedia assessment, in addition to the traditional assessment methods based on written essays.
