How can SmART help you?

The Smartphone Accommodation Resource Toolbox (SmART) is an online platform developed to support innovative teaching and learning through the use of smartphone video production and interactive feedback tools.
The platform provides curricular resources, pedagogical models, and technical supports for the smooth incorporation of video into the learning process. The resources are subdivided into four resource types.

• Video Production: guidance on making practice-based videos

• Video Feedback: assessment tools and practices

• Technique Illustration: examples and “task-trainer” creation

• Digital Citizenship: ethics, privacy and security

SmART Statistics

Studies demonstrate that when students record themselves performing a skill and receive feedback,  there is an increase in students’ feeling of connectedness and engagement in a community of learners
(DeBourgh,& Prion, 2017; Edith, Moore & Nang 2015).
