Ania Rolinska's insight:

A useful visualisation of Bloom's taxonomy with examples of various technologies - it shows how the technologies fit in with the taxonomy. I believe not all the matches are correct as some of the technologies might have more versatile uses, e.g. Padlet can certainly facilitate understanding and even serve as a platform to share creations.

A Moodle 2 version of the Moodle Tool Guide

A Moodle 2 version of the Moodle Tool Guide | What's ONline? | Scoop.it

This is Gavin Henrick's take on Joyce Seitzinger's Moodle Tool Guide (http://www.cats-pyjamas.net/2010/05/moodle-tool-guide-for-teachers/), which compares the functionality and pedagogical advantages of some standard Moodle tools. Gavin has adjusted the tool so that it is more compliant with the new version of Moodle.

Ania Rolinska's insight:

A good tool which helps you see all the moodle functionalities at a glance and evaluate their usefulness for a particular pedagogical task. Might be particulalry useful for teachers new to Moodle who might not be aware of strengths and weaknesses of various activities.
