The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy -

The Padagogy Wheel – It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy contributed by Allan Carrington, TeachThought PD Workshop Facilitator Visit TeachThought Professional Development if you’re interested in our workshop options on the Padagogy Wheel. The Padagogy Wheel is designed to help educators think – systematically, coherently, and with a view to long term, big-picture outcomes – about how they use mobile apps in their teaching. The Padagogy Wheel is all about mindsets; it’s a way of thinking about digital-age education that meshes together concerns about mobile app features, learning transformation, motivation, cognitive development and long-term learning objectives. The Padagogy Wheel, though, is not rocket science. The underlying principle of the Padagogy Wheel is that it is the pedagogy that should determine our educational use of apps. So how does it work? The Padagogy Wheel brings together in the one chart several different domains of pedagogical thinking. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Scottish Poetry Library When I am an old woman I shall wear purple With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me. And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter. I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells And run my stick along the public railings And make up for the sobriety of my youth. I shall go out in my slippers in the rain And pick flowers in other people’s gardens And learn to spit. untitled Whether you're a live teaching veteran, or a newbie to the world of streaming your lessons, you're probably still learning new tricks every day.

untitled Despite 2021 starting off with a bit of toing and froing from government on whether school buildings would open for students or not, at least now we know we are teaching remotely until at least February half term. Know that teaching and learning for the coming weeks will be online makes it much easier to plan and prepare for the term ahead. We can use the skills and knowledge we gained since March and implement it well as we are not going to on the conveyor belt of uncertainty. Yay. So for my first post for 2021 (and first since September 2020), I thought I’d share how I am approaching remote teaching with a less is more attitude.

10 Children’s Books by Black Authors for Every Bookshelf Now, more than ever, parents and educators understand the importance of speaking with children about matters of race, diversity and inclusion. There’s one area of the home or classroom that could help with starting these conversations and supporting children in their understanding: the bookshelf. Stories are a powerful tool for reflecting the beautiful diversity of our world and introducing children to different people and places. Books can also be used to initiate conversations about issues that children have no real-life experience of themselves. Through stories, children can meet new communities, empathise with characters and begin to make sense of the world around them. All of us in the Twinkl Originals team have collated our favourite stories by Black authors and illustrators to help diversify your book collection.

untitled Now that we’ve been teaching remotely for two weeks with the knowledge that we will be until (dare I say it) at least February half term, I’ve found that I’ve been able to refine my practice. Despite teaching remotely for much of March – July last year, the regular changes, uncertainty and need to learn how to teach in such a way meant that it wasn’t really until June/July that I felt comfortable. Then from September to December, there was a lot of blended teaching and learning, which felt like trying to spin too many plates at once. Personally, I’m finding that my approach now, is far more conducive to learning. I thought I’d share with you today my ‘remote teaching friendly’ PowerPoint template and a how to for setting up PowerPoints so you can type in a text box whilst presenting. PowerPoint Template
