What is Blippit® Boards/who is it for?
Blippit® Boards is two products that work together. One is a mobile app used by teachers to share tagged evidence (boards) for any subject area or wider context. The other is a web dashboard. The simple 'tagging' of shared work using the app is processed by the Dashboard for teachers. It organises and creates a big picture for every subject. The dashboard uses filters to help teachers find and understand what they have got to support their subject monitoring activities. It adapts to England or Wales settings. Reports can be run on any subject to generate PDF or Word documents that teachers can then share or edit. There is no limit to the number of boards a teacher or school can create.

Does a demo cost? How do I get someone to show me Blippit® Boards?
No! A demo that costs a school money is just wrong in our opinion. Book a chat with us and we'll take into consideration what you already know and what you want do. We chat over Zoom but if that's not what you fancy, then email support@blippit.co.uk to request a link to a pre-recorded staff intro session that we recorded with a school in April 2024.

How do we get the app?
If you are on a desktop or laptop computer right now, scroll to the bottom of the page and scan the QR code for your device type to get the app. If you are on a mobile device right now, download the iOS app or download the Android app. Rather use your laptop or desktop? If you have an account, then visit using Google Chrome or Safari to use the web version of the app instead.

What devices can I use?
Blippit® Boards iOS App now requires iOS14 or later to update to version 2.2.0. Blippit® Boards Android App needs v8.0 or later. The new web version of Blippit Boards® app runs in Google Chrome and is ideal for schools where iPads are scarce by allowing teachers to use laptops instead. Blippit® Boards Dashboard runs in a web browser on Apple/Android tablets, Mac/PC laptops and desktops. On the iPad, newer generation devices give better performance of the DashBoard e.g. 2nd-4th Generation. Landscape mode recommended on the iPad for DashBoard use.

What is a 'board'?
Boards of evidence are created using the Blippit® Boards app. They contain photos, text, tags, sound and are commonly given a title to reflect the subject focus. Tagging boards when they're made is critical. Tagged well, a board contributes massively to whole curriculum insights for school and subject leaders too.

Can we edit tags?
Yes. You can add custom tags and order bespoke tag categories too. Read this post for more on curriculum tagging in Blippit®.

Can I customise reports and charts in Blippit® Boards?
Yes. Blippit® Boards enables full customisation of reports and charts as well as exporting in a variety of formats including PDF, Docx and PNG. While most reports use tags to provide their focus, schools are also innovating by adding learner initials (e.g. ~JB) to board titles so learner specific reports can be run using the 'Search' facility.

How does Blippit® Boards help?
Schools say that teachers enjoy seeing what colleagues are doing across school. Blippit® promotes team working and builds on the collaborative ethos of schools because by using it, teachers are helping each other. This informs monitoring, conversations, support and so on. On a practical level, a reduction in use of photocopiers and other consumables achieved using Blippit® gives teachers the opportunity to do things that they would rather be doing e.g. supporting others based on evidence captured in Blippit® Boards.

What training and support resources are there?
Blippit® needs minimal training. We have a Support service and your school can request a staff input via Zoom to help launch Blippit®. There's a Blippit Knowledge Base with easy-to-follow help and advice articles too.

Is Blippit® Boards compliant with GDPR?
Yes. Blippit® is registered with the ICO and are GDPR compliant. For more information on where data is stored, encryption, security and your data rights, please visit our privacy notice page where you can also download a pre-signed data processing agreement if required.

Does Blippit® Boards integrate with other systems like our MIS?
No integration required, for example, to manage accounts based on data stored in your school management information systems. Images can be added from other systems like One Drive and Google Drive but no integration is required to achieve this.
