This morning I saw an innocent tweet from my pal David Walker (@drdjwalker) about the concept of an ‘App Swap Breakfast’. Needless to say it got me thinking …
It’s quite simple – friends, colleagues, interested individuals, etc. meet at a set time & place and showcase their favourite App of the moment.
So, here’s a call for Leicester friends and interested individuals – do you want to set one up and try it out? Shall we try and engage this on a frequent basis … every month, and if so where? There’s plenty of space.
As per Fiona MacNeill’s insightful post ‘DIY: Build your own App Swap Breakfast Event‘ you will need:
- A group of people with devices
- Session leaders (learning technologists / librarians / teachers / student advisers / mentors / etc.)
- A space/s for sessions to be held
- Common interests (teaching / learning / scholarship / institutional / subject / revision / reference / entertainment / etc.)
- A data projector
- A wall or screen on which to project
- Resource lists
- QR Codes
- Audience Feedback

Anyone interested is trying to get a Leicester App Swap Breakfast working? If you are interested (or have a particular reason why not) then please reply below or tweet with the hashtag #AppSwapLeic. If there’s enough interest perhaps we can try it out?
