I have found something amazing in this site called “the Padagogy Wheel”. A question came to my mind as I read the name. Why is written as ‘Padagogy Wheel’ and not ‘Pedagogy Wheel’? Perhaps there is some unique meaning behind this spelling
Anyways, the Padagogy Wheel provides a wonderful and helpful perspective on analyzing if the iPad apps work with Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy. It offers 62 iPad apps to the wheel, created by, Allan Carrington. He mentioned that these are not necessarily the best app for the job as many of the apps can be used in different realms but it is a good start. It might assist you in different teaching and learning ways. It is not about the tools nor the app it is all about the students (Carrington, 2011). You can read more information about it through The Padagogy Wheel…it’s a Bloomin’ Better Way to Teach.
Lastly, there are 35 digital tools that work with Bloom’s Taxonomy (Creating, Evaluating, Analyzing, Applying, Understanding and Remembering). You can integrate this in the classroom by engaging students in higher level of thinking and have a vital learning experience for the students.
Always think outside the box, I hope you enjoy reading my blog, do drop in some comments so that I can be able to improve my blog writings. You can also email me if you would like to give me feedback about my blog.
