Lectures on teacher tools

Blooms Taxonomy can be used to help us understand how we use technology in education. It helps us to understand the tasks and activities we set and how to exploit technology to achieve both lower and higher order thinking skills.

It emphasises the point that learning is not about simple understanding of key concepts but requires processing and linking to other knowledge.

This lecture deals with some of the these issues.

This is a quick video that takes you through the theory behind the Flipped Classroom and talks a bit about the educational technologies you need to learn to produce a Flipped Classroom course. This lecture is based on lots of experience as I used the approach in much of my teaching in the past and have been teaching, researching and looking at the Flipped Classroom for many years.
