Bring your devices for learning is back! #BYOD4L

I'm delighted to say that BYOD4L is back for a second time. It starts officially on Monday 14 July and runs for five days. However do follow the course hashtag #BYOD4L and join in with the conversations, introduce yourself and start making new connections.

BYOD4L for those that don't know is short for Bring Your Own Devices for Learning and is a free and open short course aimed at both teachers and students, but also anybody else who would like to use this opportunity to learn how they could use their smart devices for lifewide and lifewide learning and development. Each day we will look at a different theme and consider how we can use our smart devices for learning.   

The course site can be found at

  • Creating

No locks and no doors!
