Padagogy – Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy

padagogy Ian Green and Allan Carrington have been running padagogy workshops for faculty in Australian universities and now overseas. Allan Carrington has been blogging about it. The padagogy is based on Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy which I blogged about here earlier in the year. The visual approach which they have adopted (left) is brilliant . It just looks so effective and the sort of thing which should be hanging on our walls, be displayed on info walls and into the not so distant future I can see a big touch screen where you tap on any part of the wheel and it takes you to further screens and information. In the meantime I’d settle for a T-Shirt, a mug, a pencil case because this is one of the best visuals I have seen to advertise education and what educators can do. By using an in service approach with staff Adelaide University is ensuring better and quality uptake of the technology it is using. Comes back to the creating competence and connectedness of yesterday’s post about building engaged teams.

    • It looks brilliant. It’s the best wheel I have ever seen. Wheels seem to be part of our human culture and it’s true,
      we all seem to relate strongly to them.

  1. Yeah, it looks brilliant but I can tell you the Padagogy workshop they run is very poor indeed – simply a catalogue of different apps, accompanied by the advertising video for each, and enlivened by the words “supercharged”, “turbocharged”, “game-changer” and “on steroids” but with two small exceptions, not illustrated by any serious example of how these can be used in teaching. Nor was there any attempt to get the audience to actually use the mobile devices that most of them had brought with them. Politely put, an underwhelming presentation for practising, time-poor academics for whom teaching is only part of their responsibilities.

    • Yes, it is brilliant. It is unfortunate the workshop did not meet your needs but I think you have isolated the problem. People are expected to do a lot in a short time and jobs have become increasingly complex. It isn’t easy doing a tech presentation and organise that alongside other things. The wheel itself is a big contribution and the other things can be improved. I thank you for taking the time to comment and sharing your views.
