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.
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.
