This workshop will provide you with an overview of PebblePad and show you how you might use it to enhance teaching and assessment in your unit. You will learn to build assets in PebblePad, construct a digital workbook resource for your students and set up an ATLAS workspace for student submissions and marking. You will also be able to ask questions about your own context and find out how you might start using PebblePad to enrich your students’ learning experiences.
