What is the JISC Summer of Student Innovation?
The JISC Summer of Student Innovation is a chance for students to create real technology solutions to improve education, research and student life. JISC champions the use of digital technologies in UK education and research and is funding learners with new ideas on how to use technology to improve student life.
What is the new App about?
The new App is called Unite, and was developed by Rebecca Rochon, Senior Lecturer in Education and Learning Development. It allows students to connect with other students before starting university.
Unite is a social networking app for the community of higher education. It’s cooler than a standard social networking app, a little less grown-up than an app for working professionals and far less awkward to use for finding housemates than a dating app.
What is at stake?
At stake is £5,000 of prize money to help develop the App. If it goes through, there will be paid work for animators at Bucks!
