Further issues arising from the research • Unfamiliar interface • Computing access • Integrated approach across the partnership • Where next?
Computing access • Trainees were able to effectively access PebblePad from campus computer suites and their homes • Most teaching rooms are not equipped with computers for students to use • Only some (20%) students brought laptops or netbooks with them to class
