Last year we gave you our iteration of the 12 Apps of Christmas, this year (and what a year it has been) we decided to go for something different.

So you may have participated in the veritable smorgasbord of 12 Apps versions out there year, in particular *the original* Regent’s University London (http://tinyurl.com/12AoC16 and #12AoC on Twitter) and Dublin Institution of Technology (chums we made last year: http://the12appsofchristmas2016.wordpress.com and #12appsDIT on Twitter), but this year University of Brighton brought the dessert! We presented The Burning of the Apps on Tuesday, 20th December at Falmer – at the new Explore Studio (Checkland D132). A day-long event,  you could’ve attended, dropped-in-to or participated online from any campus or further afield. We showcased current academic practice using apps, web applications and general technology to support learning and teaching.
