The LearningWheel

A Model of Digital Pedagogy

By Deborah Kellsey, Amanda Taylor

Given the influence of digital technologies on the world at large, education and educators are yet again being forced to consider their educational practices. Not all educators have been socialised professionally to use technologies, causing knowledge gaps. This book adds to emerging conversations about the use of technologies to support and replace traditional teaching methodologies in a range of educational settings. It offers an example of the innovative approach 'LearningWheel' to bridge the afore mentioned knowledge gap, providing an opportunity for readers to engage with technologies for teaching and learning purposes. Beginning with an outline of how technologies are shaping the learning landscape more broadly, each subsequent chapter takes on a layer of the?LearningWheel and sets it in context from a theoretical position. An example wheel is included in each chapter, as are stop and pause questions to prompt educators to engage with the content in a very real sense. Readers will also have the opportunity to connect with the LearningWheel (VCoP) in the development of a LearningWheel unique to this book. [Subject: Education]
