T is for Training 179: My job is to help you not implode

On the call were Maurice Coleman , Paul Signorelli, Courtney Young,Jill Hurst-Wahl and  mystery guest 5 from the Buffalo, NY area. The topic was the Padagogy Wheel.  What is the Padagogy Wheel?  According Allan Carrington:

The Padagogy Wheel was born out of a desire to help teachers at the coalface of teaching. I wanted a model that could be applied to everything from curriculum planning, development, writing learning objectives and designing student centered activities. Then quickly help teachers access relevant educational technology e.g. individual iPad apps or sequences of apps, to enhance those activities. Finally to help teachers use that technology to redefine activities to include tasks previously inconceivable. I believe this will increase student engagement, improve learning outcomes and empower a student towards transforming into an excellent graduate.

We also talked about using student use in the classroom.
