The Padagogy Wheel ... it's a Bloomin' Better Way to Teach

The Padagogy  Wheel ... it's a Bloomin' Better Way to Teach | Innovation & Suggestion Programs | Scoop.it

" Dr Ian Green from the School of Education here at Adelaide and I [Allan Carrington] have used Padagogy 101 (introduction to iPad in HE) and Padagogy 201 (more advanced use for L&T) to train over 600 faculty from universities in Australia. During my research I saw lots of great work done by others using Bloom’s Taxonomy including the Revised Taxonomy which has now become the Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy. However when I discovered the excellent pioneer work done by Kathy Schrock with “Bloomin’ Apps” I got the idea for the Padagogy Wheel. Dare I say it but it is the next version for mobile learning of the ongoing importance of Bloom’s Taxonomy. Bloom’s is still fundamental to good teaching and learning."

A good starting point for I-pad apps and usage for educational purposes. Great to have the links. As always the first step in a journey that has many twists and turns. It takes you where you want to go but there are many pathways you can take and who knows where they will lead you!Sometimes it's the journey that is important not just the destination.

This is so helpful. As a visual learner I can see how the wheel can be used for home schooling. It is a fantastic resource for contextualising learning.

What is creativity? Creativity...

1. is about showing up.

2. is about getting curious.

3. is limitless.

4. focuses on the process, not the product.

5. is about not being skilled.

6. is for your to find the "magic threshold" and foget perfection.

7. is full of surprises.

8. is full of ups and downs.

9. means everyone is creative.

David Schultz's curator insight, April 23, 2013 11:43 AM

Creativity is the art of solving problems...  That is what this article is about.  To solve problems look beyond your own experience and look at what creative people like artists do.  The good ones are those that solve problems.  Though the problems being solved are not the same as in business the principles of how they solve them can be replicated in other aspects of life.

David Schultz's curator insight, May 7, 2013 11:01 AM

The varying outlooks we have when we use different words to describe something is intresting.  Here the difference between "student" & "learner" points to who is ulitmatly responsible for our own intellectual development.  I wonder if the same could be true with our use of generic titles in the work place.  For example can using the word "leader" in place of "follower" for staff and use of the word "visonary" in place of "leader" for executives place the responsibility for success in a more productive perspective?
