I came across this visual guide – the Padagogy Wheel V4.0 – and it just makes total sense! And I’m sharing this!
Dedicated to the academics who want to incorporate tech into the classroom.
The iPadagogy Wheel – originally discovered on the website of Paul Hopkin’s education consultancy site mmiweb.org.uk, adopted by Allan Carrington at the University of Adelaide, Australia and further modified for teachers at Zeeland Public Schools in Michigan, USA.
App Selection Criteria – Some useful notes.
REMEMBERING CRITERIA. Remembering: Apps that fit into the "remembering" stage improve the user's ability to define terms, identify facts, and recall and locate information. Many educational apps fall into the "remembering" phase of learning. They ask users to select an answer out of a line-up, find matches, and sequence content or input answers.
UNDERSTANDING CRITERIA. Understanding: Apps that fit into this "understanding" stage provide opportunities for students to explain ideas or concepts. Understanding apps step away from the selection of a "right" answer and introduce a more open-ended format for students to summarize content and translate meaning.
APPLYING CRITERIA. Applying: Apps that fit into the applying stage provide opportunities for students to demonstrate their ability to implement learned procedures and methods. They also highlight the ability to apply concepts in unfamiliar circumstances.
ANALYZING CRITERIA. Analyzing: Apps that fit into the "analyzing" stage improve the user's ability to differentiate between the relevant and irrelevant, determine relationships, and recognize the organization of content.
EVALUATING CRITERIA. Evaluating: Apps that fit into the "evaluating" stage improve the user's ability to judge material or methods based on criteria set by themselves or external sources. They help students judge content reliability, accuracy, quality, effectiveness, and reach informed decisions.
CREATING CRITERIA. Creating: Apps that fit into the "creating" stage provide opportunities for students generate ideas, design plans, and produce products.
It would appear that I am still an academic at heart!
Yesterday, I was in TTDI in KL to attend the WIM Toastmasters meeting. I took up the role as a Timekeeper.
