in 2013, we can’t be wasting time with tasks that can be automated, data that can be collected electronically and processes that can be performed digitally that can save hours of manual work. Work smarter by utilizing high quality digital resources, not harder.

A quality resource for educational leaders- to review and assess their monetary commitment to technology and how the resources are being applied. Sometimes it it's not about how many computers we have, its more about how they are enhancing instruction and student achievement and growth.

G'day and greetings from South Australia: The latest Padagogy Wheel gathers Graduate Attributes, Motivation, Blooms Taxonomy, iPad Apps and finally the SAMR Model together in a helpful infographic. Have a look at the Version 3.0 Poster it puts it all on one diagram ( http://tinyurl.com/padwheelposter3) I have explained V3 on my blog post "The Padagogy Wheel V3.0: Learning Design starts with graduate attributes, capabilities and motivation" (http://tinyurl.com/padwheel3). Jeff Dunn of Edudemic reviewed the Wheel at "Updated Padagogy Wheel Tackles The Problem Of Motivation In Education" (http://tinyurl.com/edudemicpadwheel)

However I think my latest blog post "Using The Padagogy Wheel: It’s All About Grey-matter Grids (GGs)" (http://tinyurl.com/padwheelgrids) will be the most helpful to teachers. I would really appreciate feedback from any teacher who tries out these ideas. Do these concepts actually fly in anything from curriculum design through to facilitating a class online or face-to-face? I agree with Jeff Dunn when he says "This new Padagogy Wheel (which honestly is less about iPads and more about technology integration now) should encourage you to focus on redefining your current standards, the current role tech plays in your classroom, and just about everything else. The new visual wants you to start creating, not just understanding or analyzing. I love this new take on the wheel and look forward to version 3.0!"

The Good News: V3.0 is now out and some help to make it all work for you the teacher. Please try it and let me know how it goes and what can be don to make it even more useful in your practice or Professional Development (PD) for you and colleagues

As school librarians take on more of a teaching role to remain relevant AND to affect student achievement, knowing about these assessment types will help with the conversation. Get to know them so that you can help teachers create/deliver assessments.

Lynn Lease's curator insight, March 16, 9:23 AM

Assessment is more than just testing! Stop by the CEE to discuss assessments appropriate for your learning objectives.
