Design Your Own Digital Learning Wheel - PD for Teachers
1 Check out the Padagogy Wheel
- First, take a look at Alan Carrington's Padagogy Wheel. He visually outlines higher-order thinking skills based on Bloom's Taxonomy, to robust student objective action verbs, to classroom activities, to iPad apps -- all of which is aimed at getting educators to redefine their lesson planning.
- Now reflect on your own students' needs. Which tools do you agree with? Which would you change based on your classroom needs?
2 Create Your Own Digital Learning Wheel
- Since every classroom has different needs, we know you probably need to revise the outer ring! Think about which devices you have, what budget you have, and what learning needs your students have.
- Now copy this version of a Digital Learning Wheel into ThingLink.
- Now go discover new tools on Graphite! You may want to look back at the Padagogy Wheel for inspiration, or take a look at some thematic Top Picks lists.
- Finally, go back to your ThingLink image and add links to your chosen products (or the review!) into the outer ring.
3 Share your Digital Learning Wheel
Consider how you could share your Digital Learning Wheel. Perhaps you can share with your teaching team. How might your students benefit if they could weigh in on the digital tools they find most effective and engaging? Feel free to share your ThingLink url within the Graphite community so that others can be inspired by your creative thinking.
