For this Case Study we sat down with Julia Wheeler from Social Work to discuss how PebblePad is being used by students to evidence practice whilst on Placement.
In Social Work students are sent out on placement and are asked to evidence certain skills and competencies. These are checked by both external mentors from the placements and tutors here at Plymouth University. Previously, this was carried out using paper and meant student progress was only seen once the portfolio was submitted. Postal copies were also large in size and were sometimes lost in the post.In the case study Julia talks through the benefits of using PebblePad, lessons learned along the way and her plans for developing the practice further.
