BYOD Making Connections to Pedagogy

BYOD Making Connections to Pedagogy

In my last post I shared information about apps you could have your students download and save on their devices for use in the classroom. I know there are many apps available and you may still be a bit overwhelmed about which ones you may want to incorporate in the classroom. I definitely understand.

Thanks to a former AIMS colleague for sharing the work of Allan Carrington (http://www.unity.net.au/allansportfolio/), a scholar in Australia who has matched app use on devices with Bloom’s Taxonomy.

The Padagogy Wheel

Here is Allan’s blog with the explanation of the wheel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAYVQlUVpK4&feature=youtu.be

(Make sure you download the free PDF of the wheel at http://www.unity.net.au/allansportfolio/edublog/?p=874)

Since being introduced to the Pedagogy Wheel, I wanted to refresh my memory of Bloom’s Taxonomy. Here is an explanation in a YouTube video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__YdXxwBZ7Q

I hope this helps you with your thinking about what apps to incorporate into the classroom and which will become part of your regular teaching practices.

I especially got a good laugh watching the YouTube video with Andy Griffith Show clips explaining Bloom’s Taxonomy. Guess you know what vintage I may be!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrLWxa-cKKc

Thanks for commenting and I look forward to learning and sharing more about device and app use in the classroom.
