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

The Padagogy  Wheel ... it's a Bloomin' Better Way to Teach | Language acquisition and immersion instruction - for teachers | 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.

Staying in the Target Language

Staying in the Target Language | Language acquisition and immersion instruction - for teachers | Scoop.it

Staying in the Target Language highlights both reasons and strategies for continuous use of the target language in the world language classroom. A conversation with Dr. Carol Ann Dahlberg, co-author of Languages and Children Making the Match, sets the stage for the other modules in the tutorial. Throughout the conversation, Dr. Dahlberg emphasizes that world language teachers must carefully plan their instruction to make the continuous use of the target language comprehensible to the students. Equally important, teachers must select topics or themes that are of interest to the students so that they want to be actively engaged in learning how to understand and use the language. Those topics or themes provide a framework that guides the selection of language learning activities that build on each other, giving students multiple opportunities to hear and use the language in meaningful ways. The conversation concludes with Dr. Dahlberg talking about the magic that empowers students to understand and use the target language.

5 Tips for Using Language in Context

5 Tips for Using Language in Context | Language acquisition and immersion instruction - for teachers | Scoop.it
When helping bilingual and ELL children succeed in school, it is important to use language in context. Here are 5 tips to help you achieve this.

 

There are so many wonderful ways for our children to learn languages today. Online programs offer interactive multimedia opportunities that we could have only dreamed of having when we were young. Bilingual books and DVDs can be found in many libraries around the country, and children’s language learning classes abound.

 

What parents and teachers sometimes forget is the value of context when it comes to learning a language. Flash cards and online vocabulary games can be fun, but they don’t offer the kind of language development that human conversation provides. We use language for communication, and therefore it is best learned in its natural form: through discussions, conversations and stories.
