No 23. The Pedagogy Wheel

Classrooms and Staffrooms

Bloom’s Taxonomy is always talked about in education showing the different learning objectives that pupils should achieve. For a more up to date version have a look at the pedagogy wheel which gives examples of actions and activities that pupils can engage in according to the four objectives of: remember/understand, apply, analyse, evaluate, create. Better still, it even suggests iPad apps that are relevant for pupils and teachers to use for each of the four objectives.

Academic heavyweights like Harvard, Stanford and MIT back the courses, giving the world of online learning a much-needed boost of credibility.
