Rather than pedagogy this is the Padagogy Wheel,looking at Bloom's Taxonomy related to the iPad. Would you agree with where the apps are placed or do you find that your use of them varies from what is suggested above? 

Allan Carrington's comment, March 8, 2013 6:29 PM
THE PADAGOGY WHEEL: Thanks Jenny for reposting this. I am the first to agree that some of these apps might be better placed elsewhere on the wheel also there are more than one place for each app and there is constant need for updating as new apps are released. Where I am planning to take this next is develop "app powered learning sequences" i.e. connecting more than one app together to build a learning activity sequence. This will IMHO generate a highly engaging flow of transformational learning .... what do others think?

Also I thought some people might also find my 1.57 min video thought provoking. In it I introduce this wheel and more research I am working on with graduate attributes, Please visit http://tinyurl.com/padwheelvid which will be redirected to YouTube. I am calling the method the CAMERA Method .. "Capabilities and Attributes Mapping for Educational Results inspiring Achievement" ... it's all about the students being all they can be. It is about mapping everything back to graduate attributes, values and capabilities These are more than learning outcomes, they are an attempt to define a graduate.

There is also the podcast episode I did with Prof Geoff Scott of the Uni of Western Sydney. He has done years of research into graduate capabilities (aka values or attributes) It is fascinating stuff in the context of Technology Enhanced Learning and Teaching. He has asked the people who give the jobs and catalogued what the respective industries in the market place want in graduates. Duh! Look at the list and ask yourself are they being developed in students from Higher Education or in Education in general ... this is why mapping is so important. Are we equipping graduates to excel and make a difference .... hmmm! Have a look and listen to http://tinyurl.com/alsltblog. "If you exercise these capabilities ... you will be employed!" This sort of stuff makes the "CAMERA method" worth developing. Comments are welcome guys? ... regards Allan.

lovely bunch of details to ponder

Ness Crouch's curator insight, March 9, 2013 4:22 PM

I'm glad to be able to use blogging as a tool with my students at the moment. It's something I'd like to build throughout the year. I'm encouraging my students to think carefully about what they post. I'm currently using only a classroom blog because the students are not experienced enough for their own blogs. I'll reevaluate that later in the year.

PowerPoint 2013: Widescreen Presentations

PowerPoint 2013: Widescreen Presentations | B&IT Technology | Scoop.it

Widescreen, also known as 16:9, HDTV, 720p, 1080p, 13.333”x7.5”, among other names, is the new default aspect ratio in the new PowerPoint. To make your experience with the new dimensions pleasant, we’ve built a brand new set of themes specifically targeting this aspect ratio, and we’ve improved our conversion code so that you can easily make the switch to widescreen from other aspect ratios.

There is no doubt that widescreen presentations are more impressive than the standard size ones.

The article gives evidence for it and explains how you can go from standard to widescreen size in PowerPoint 2013. It also gives tips how you can print handouts of widescreen presentations.
