A New Wonderful Wheel on SAMR and Bloom's Digital Taxonomy

A New Wonderful Wheel on SAMR and Bloom's Digital Taxonomy
The buzz that the Modern Taxonomy Wheel generated over the last couple of weeks has not yet died out and now we have a new updated wheel from the same guy Allan Carrington. We love Allan's work and we find it really interesting. His wheels come along in such a visually attractive way summarizing most of the apps and web tools we have been sharing here with you. If you already had a chance to have a look at the previous wheel and compare it with this new one you will notice that Allan has brought about some new updates to the new wheel. If you are not familiar with what SAMR is all about, please read this post. Now, Click on this LINK to get the poster as PDF. Related:  Elearnbloom

New: Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit for Teachers March 28, 2014 Somebody shared with me this wonderful Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit for Teachers and want you to have a look as well. The image is huge and so can't upload it here but you can use the provided link to access the original version. The reason why I am sharing this work here is because it provides a new way to think about Bloom's Taxonomy. In Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit, you will be offered with a variety of key words, action verbs, outcomes and questions related to each of the thinking levels in the taxonomy.

Tons of Classroom Examples Using Augmented Reality with @Aurasma - A Complete How-To Guide! How to Use Augmented Reality in Your Classroomthis post is read best via a desktop due to the embedded video content Augmented reality allows someone to add another layer to an existing image. For example, imagine holding your phone over a poster on the wall as if you were going to take a photo of that poster, and then instantly a video starts playing to offer you additional information about that particular poster. Pretty cool, right? The first time it happens, it seems like magic. After watching the video below, I knew I had to figure this augmented reality thing out. Aurasma is the app I use to create augmented reality. Sharing Aurasma with My Husband's Colleagues Not only is augmented reality amazing, it's also free and easy to do. While waiting for our table to be called for dinner, we were discussing the nice decorations displayed around the reception hall. His colleagues began instantly brainstorming how this could be used for their business. Augmented Reality Vocabulary Step 1:

States of Matter: Engaging Students With Snow and Science States of matter can be a tricky topic to broach with young students. My students quickly attach to solids and liquids, but gas isn’t apparent, and phase changes are confusing. There are many scientific inquiry activities out there to explore phases. Combine science learning with some math activities and reading, and all of a sudden you have integrated lessons that make learning stick. These are a few of my class's favorites: Background Knowledge I showed students a few objects: stapler, bottle of water and filled balloon, and asked them to tell me the differences between them. States of Matter Snowman After learning what states of matter are, I asked students how we might create a snowman without any snow (which is easy to imagine since we rarely, if ever, have snow here). To assemble the snowman, unwrap the ice balls from the balloons and add salt, which helps the ice stick together. After our snowman melted, we made predictions about how long it would take him to evaporate. Crystalize

14 Essential eLearning Templates When I develop eLearning courses, there are many common elements that I use over and over. By identifying patterns, I can create a reusable framework that reduces development time on future courses. Tom Kuhlmann had an interesting analogy of an eLearning course being like a sandwich with the top and bottom slices of bread being the welcome and exit screens, respectively, and then a lot of course content in-between. You can then pick and choose the layers of content that you need for a particular course. Below, I’ve outlined the 14 types of content that I use frequently in my eLearning courses. I’ve ordered these in the frequency I use them. I’ve also linked out to free resources where I have them (and I plan to create more!). If you want to get links to the free templates as we build more, make sure to sign up for the blog here. Intro You only get one chance to make a first impression. I have this type of template in the #1 spot because every course I develop has an intro screen. Scenario

A New Fantastic Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for iPad Apps March 21, 2014 Today while I was browsing through my Twitter feeds I came across this fabulous Bloom's Taxonomy wheel of apps shared by Anthony. If you still recall, some previous versions of this wheel have already been featured here in Bloom's Taxonomy for Teachers section . As you can see, the wheel outlines a wide variety of verbs and activities related to each thinking level of Blooms taxonomy coupled with iPad apps that go with it. These apps are supposed to help teachers and students better cultivate these different thinking levels in their use of iPad apps. And because the the visual is not hyperlinked, I went ahead and provided the links for each of these apps in the lists below. Create Evaluate Annalyse Apply Remember/understand This wheel is originally discovered on the website of Paul Hopkin's education consultancy site adopted by Allan Carrington.

Two Guys and Some iPads Teacher in a Strange Land By Nancy Flanagan January 1, 2015 at 5:37 PM Even though a child may indeed be reveling in and absorbing the wonders of a rich travel experience, or a deeply rewarding family visit, back home in the classroom, they're...behind. And school time is sacred. Or not. By Nancy Flanagan December 24, 2014 at 8:00 AM There are reviewers (both formal and casual) who judge a book entirely by one aspect: Does the author agree with me? By Nancy Flanagan December 22, 2014 at 10:36 AM Student athletes and student musicians have lots in common--they're kids who are seriously engaged in wholesome, school-based activities that have a big impact on their development and eventual lives, careers and citizenship.

By Nancy Flanagan November 26, 2014 at 8:39 PM Shouldn't we educators be modeling civic discourse, at appropriate levels of understanding?
