Hannah Tyreman, Online Learning Specialist
This tool enhanced my teaching as in a single URL, I could share a collection of materials related to a topic we were studying or even an entire course (using section titles to split up the content). It was important that learning materials were easily accessible to my students at the time, especially via mobile and Pearltrees was one way to achieve this.
Collections were co-created with colleagues to provide support for students and teachers alike (in relation to UCAS for instance). Collections were also created on aspects of Teaching &a Learning to support staff research projects.
The online word is crammed with so many delightful and useful things that curation is important. I believe that students, certainly at the start of their digital skills journey, need direction about where to go. It is through modelling this curation that students can learn for themselves.
