Introducing the Mobile@Priory Cookbook

The past two years have seen the development of a Mobile policy that has encouraged their use; the provision of student accessible WiFi and the co-planning of lessons that use a blend of students’ own devices and our own.  The next twelve months will see some further exciting developments, including some work with the fab people at the UK Partners in Learning.  

In the meantime, here is our Mobile @ Priory Cookbook.  It documents the journey through this project so far and has been put together by the lovely people at Borbonesa who we worked with last year.  It’s embedded below and also available here.  It’s a cookbook instead of a manual or instruction book as it’s  designed to dip in and out of – to take what works and implement it in a different way by adding different ingredients at different institutions.  We’d welcome your feedback.
