It really is a very comprehensive 'how-to".

JudithBriles's curator insight, June 12, 2013 7:41 PM

Savvy authors know that publishing isn't done at the five and dime. Get smart; get realistic; get planning.

G'day Olga and greetings from Downunder on the bottom in the middle. That's how I describe Adelaide to colleagues in the USA and Europe :-) Wow Russian that's awesome, may I see it please. Let me know if I can help further. Maybe we can meet on SKYPE. Also I don't think your translation work will be wasted howevert there is a modified Version 3.0 out which is even better. Please visit http://tinyurl.com/padwheelposter3 This is a PDF designed to be an A3 poster as well. All the apps are also linked and it uses QRcodes for scanning by phones etc. You may also find this blog post helpful - please have a look at the Edudemic post http://ow.ly/lKJcK Do contact me if you have any questions. Could I be bold and suggest you translate the entire poster all the content is helpful I believe. I can provide you with a Keynote file (for MAC) which will make it easier. Regards Allan
Olga Evstifeeva's comment, June 7, 2013 7:50 AM
Good evening, Allan, thanks for your respond!
Olga Evstifeeva's comment, June 7, 2013 7:50 AM
I've posted the translation in my blog, here is the link to the post http://pedagogland.ru/ispolzovanie-it-v-sochetanii-s-taksonomiej-bluma.html
The picture is linked with your pdf file at http://www.unity.net.au/padwheel/padwheelposter.pdf, and there is another link in the text to your article in your blog http://www.unity.net.au/allansportfolio/edublog/?p=324

I laid out the translation of the contents of the wheel into the spreadsheet with some short comments (primarily concerning the SAMR model and levels of IT use in school education - column 1) and added a few apps and online services with a few links to some brief guides (the last column, for the teachers who are probably not familiar with some of them yet :) as iPads are not widely used at our schools yet (maybe in the nearest future), so apps for desktops or laptops are more actual for us by far.

That's great that you gave me the link for the P_Wheel 3.0, thank you! Right, motivation along with graduate features should be in the core of the wheel. I'd be happy to translate the entire poster, thanks for the suggestion, the problem is that I don't use Mac. What can we do here? my email: olga@dohnsco.com
Best regards
