PebblePad: Personalising the Curriculum
Improving learning and development through thoughtful learning design
We are delighted to announce that the third International PebblePad conference will be held in Victoria, Australia, from Monday 14th to Wednesday 16th April, 2014. Set amongst the wineries of Lancefield, a small town north of Melbourne, PebbleBash 2014 continues the tradition of the intimate residential conference. PebbleBash aims to maximise opportunities for learning, networking, and collaboration in a friendly, focussed and professional environment.
PebblePad3, the Personal Learning and Assessment System, clearly separates out Pebble+, the Personal Learning Space (PLS), and ATLAS, the Active Teaching Learning and Assessment Space. What marries the two in supported learning contexts is the Curriculum. Thoughtful curriculum personalises learning and development, giving value and meaning to the learning objects created by the learner. Well-designed learning activities are also much more likely to promote self-directed use of PebblePad.
Authentic assessment and accreditation further enriches the learning experience through feedback from peers, assessors and mentors, without compromising the learner’s sense of ownership and control.
This conference will provide a forum for sharing examples of thoughtful curriculum, discussing the use of the PLS in formal teaching, assessment and accreditation processes, and inspiring delegates to personalise their own curriculum.
