Diversity & inclusion was last week’s theme. Will hopefully be able to share more about it in some more detail pretty soon but last week saw a group of high school students with EAL giving Blippit a good workout. The activity they undertook in an afternoon resulted in a justifiably proud Head teacher, class teacher and of course critically proud students. Perhaps, for me anyway, significant was the way in which the school chose to share it’s achievements and who it shared them with ie. on Facebook with parents and students.
The second highlight was the subscribing to Blippit of a leading high school for students with special educational needs. Absolutely wonderful and I can’t wait to hopefully (fingers crossed) get in there to see how Blippit will be exploited in the students’ learning there. Hopefully much more to come on that one soon.
You’ve recently asked for:
- html tutorials -handy stuff to make exciting things happen
- new ways to present navigation including images, different colours
- refinements to the way Admin accounts display certain areas of information about the apps
We’re working to deliver these and would like to thank you again for just taking the time and having a go!! Your effort and feedback are phenomenal and it helps massively to improve Blippit week after week.
A year 7 student recently began work on a German app after finding she was enjoying the subject a lot.
Me: “Ah, so it’s a revision app?”
Student: “No, it’s a learning app!”
(Note: The Google Translate feature is not 100% working reliably and it may I am told be removed but for now it’s a cunning bit of integration and simple coding.
