Read every link to this page. The wheel itself is great but the links explaining the pedagogy behind it are important too!

Allan Carrington's comment, March 15, 2013 10:05 PM
THE PADAGOGY WHEEL: Thanks Christopher for reposting this, I am honoured that so many people find this helpful - as I write (031613) would you believe it has 229 reposts in Scoop and in Google as a search string it gets 803,000 results. 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. Please help me with suggestions as to HOW it can be updated and telling me which apps for example, need adding or replacing. Where I am planning to take this next is to link to the apps, exemplar ways they have been used to achieve the learning outcomes mapped to the cognitive domains. Also to 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 you and 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.

Wonderful Visual on SAMR As A Framework for Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Wonderful Visual on SAMR As A Framework for Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | A new Year 7 Curriculum! BYOD and Transition | Scoop.it

"Proponents of the sociolinguistic perspective to the study of literacy ( e.g.Paul Gee, Collin Lanksheare, Michelle Knobel, Brian Street, to mention but a few ) view the developments of literacy and with it education as a direct result to the sophistication of the social and cultural aspect of human life. Some of them like Collin and Michelle associate the evolution of education to that of the web and hence the nomenclature education 1.0 (related web 1.0), education 2.0 ( related to web 2.0), and education (3.0 related to web 3.0). This association, however is not haphazard for there are many commonalities between each pair."

I started using Evernote for storing notes from meetings so I could retrieve them on any device at any location.  It is searchable and does way more than keep notes stored and accessible. This site will lead you to excellent explanations of Evernote and its functionality. It can be particularly useful  for teachers and their students !--Lou

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: google forms

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: google forms | A new Year 7 Curriculum! BYOD and Transition | Scoop.it
Free resource of educational web tools, 21st century skills, tips and tutorials on how teachers and students integrate technology into education
Christopher Bounds's insight:

I've spent far too many hours testing professional-level survey instruments and I keep getting requests to trouble-shoot surveys for people. Google forms is, for me, an example of how a simple tool is often the best option for a job. Unless you need access to analytics within the tool or site, then Forms is a godsend, and if you do need to carry out something complex, then it is a simple matter to export the responses to Excel or SAS or whatever else you want to use to jazz up your report.

 

We do need to master data in our profession, but we don't need to be research scientists. An accessible tool makes teachers want to use it and this provides an incentive to collect the data and use to to inform learning.

Euneos's curator insight, August 10, 2013 1:55 AM

Kannataa seurata Viljenka Savlin skuuppauksia. Hän on pätevä tabletien  käyttäjä ja tabletien käytön kouluttaja, joka on aloittanut työskentelyn sähköisillä rihvelitauluilla ( Android, iPad, Windows) ja appseilla heti kun ne tulivat markkinoille ja otettiin käyttöön kouluissa. Vili on ollut European Schools Projectin slovenialainen koordinattori jo 1990-luvulta asti. Hän on kouluttanut vuosien ajan eurooppalaisia opettajia "Midnight Sun" Comenius 2 -kursseilla Inarissa, ks http://www.ejournal.fi/lapcom2/ . Vili on kouluttajana kurssilla jatkossakin. Kurssi pidetään Inarissa tällä kertaa 27.4. - 3.5. 2014, eikä keskikesällä, johtuen EU:n opetusalan koulutusjärjestelmän muutoksesta. Globaalista oppimisesta ja projektimenetelmistä kiinnostuneita suomalaisia opettajia on osallistunut kursseille, mutta he eivät voi saada EU:n apurahaa kurssia varten.
