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

The Padagogy  Wheel ... it's a Bloomin' Better Way to Teach | Teaching (EFL & other teaching-learning related issues) | 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.

I really like how this is presented. A great approach that presents a number of choices to be used for teaching and learning. Being a visual learner, I find this very accessible.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy | Teaching (EFL & other teaching-learning related issues) | Scoop.it

Med Kharback:

I just got this poster from a fellow teacher featuring the 6 thinking skills as outlined in the revised taxonomy. As you probably know, Blooms taxonomy that was first created in the 1950s has been revised by Krathwohl and there are two  main changes that appeared in this revised taxonomy: the first one is semantic in that nouns are now being replaced with verbs; and the second change relates to the order of these thinking skills. In the old taxonomy, Bloom highlighted the importance of evaluating and therefore placed it at the top of the  thinking continuum, but for Krathwohl Creating is the highest order thinking skill.

With all of the cuts in education though, would it not be beneficial for a new teachers to start to create this type of digital portfolio?  I know some great new teachers that had to move schools or divisions because there just wasn’t enough jobs for them at the end of the day.  Will “branding” yourself and creating a digital identity/footprint that is conducive with your teaching philosophy not only help your colleagues, but create more opportunities for yourself.  It was not too long ago that Forbes Magazine published a blog entry discussing how the traditional ”resume” will be replaced by an online presence.  One of the points in the article shared how, “job seeker passion has become the deciding factor in employment“, and I believe that would be tough to show in a resume.  Through a portfolio, this could be shown over and over again through stories and shared experiences of your teaching; in a resume it would traditionally be shared through an opening paragraph.  As someone who has hired several candidates, I know that I have been able to get more of a “story” through a more comprehensive digital portfolio than I have from a resume.  If this is something that everyone is not doing (yet), won’t creating an online presence give many an advantage?  This obviously has other factors involved (who is hiring and what they are looking for, what the portfolio says, etc.), but I think that there could be many positives to this being done for new and/or experienced teachers.

David Royal, an associate director of the University of South Florida's English Language Program, wants his website to bring together resources for ESL and EFL teachers interested in integrating global issues and / or environmental activism into their classes.

In addition to the blog, there are static pages including his teaching materials and links to other resources.D. Royal also has an ESL podcast in which he offers ideas, shares materials and discusses his teaching.

Awesome Digital Citizenship Graphic for your Classroom | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Awesome Digital Citizenship Graphic for your Classroom | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching (EFL & other teaching-learning related issues) | Scoop.it

Digital citizenship is " the norms of appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use."

 

It is the combination of technical and social skills that enable a person to be successful and safe in the information age. Just like literacy and numeracy initiatives which provide people with the skills to ' participate in the work force, digital literacy has become an essential skill to be a confident, connected, and actively involved life long learner.'

 

I personally recommend that teachers and educators should, throughout the entire school year, devote special sessions to just teaching students about Digital Citizenship. Students need to learn how to act appropriately while using the net and there are several activities and resources to help you do that with them. Check out this section  to access some of these resources. I am also sharing with you today a great graphic on the components of digital citizenship.Try out printing it and using it with your students in the classroom. It is really wonderful. Click headline to view graphic full screen--

Connected Learning:


  1. Interest-powered – the researchers state that “learners who are interested in what they are learning, achieve higher order learning outcomes.” This requirement brings a certain degree of relevance to educational models. Organizations that follow the connected learning principles create programming that allows the learner to explore their own interests.
  2. Peer-supported – Connected learning also has an element of socialization as a required function in learning. Allowing learners to interact with each other and teach each other in various forms of group work helps learners make connections not only with the materials they’re learning, but with their peers as well. Creating learning spaces where peer to peer learning is encouraged leads to deeper cultural exploration and understanding.
  3. Academically oriented – The third principle proposed by the Connected Learning Model proposes that academic success is an important underpinning for intellectual growth.
