Floor Books and Blippit Boards

May 31, 2024

In some early years settings, we hear more and more that there is a growing trend, since 2023, towards using Blippit® Boards as a replacement for traditional floor books. Is this something that we set out to achieve? Honestly? No!  But when you put open-ended tools like Blippit® into schools you can guarantee that creative applications will come up and this is one of them.

Blippit® is basically making the documentation process easier and consequently saving teachers time. Teachers are no longer burdened with the time-consuming tasks of printing (when it works), photocopying (when there's toner or no jam), cutting (when there's a guillotine or adult scissors) and sticking (let's not even go into finding a glue stick) children's work into physical books. Instead, they can efficiently capture and document children's thoughts, ideas, questions, and observations digitally with ready-made tags.

This teacher-friendly digital approach saves time, keeps things tidy and searchable and removes the barriers associated with physical storage and preservation of traditional floor books. Additionally, Blippit® can provide a more organized and easily accessible way to capture and share certain aspects of the learning journey with parents and visitors in a controlled way that avoids adding to teachers' daily pressures, made worse through parental messaging. Blippit allows children to revisit their work with their teacher/parents/carers to feel that all-important sense of ownership too.

You'll be pressed for time or maybe talking to someone you don't know very well isn't your thing, so, we also have a video that you can watch of a staff meeting where Blippit® was introduced (email and we'll send you a link.
