This model is based around the blooms taxonomy of higher order thinking. In the centre it has the traditional headings of blooms, the next circle has action verbs, then activities to accompany each level of thinking.

The new addition is the outer circle; in this layer the addition of various ipad apps are included. There are a selection of ipadd apps availble to each level of thinking in various topics/ area of study.

Bringing the old method of leanring the the 21st centurary!

How to Stimulate Curiosity

How to Stimulate Curiosity | CONSORTIUM Learning Curation | Scoop.it

"Curiosity is the engine of intellectual achievement—it's what drives us to keep learning, keep trying, keep pushing forward. But how does one generate curiosity, in oneself or others? George Loewenstein, a professor of economics and psychology at Carnegie Mellon University, proposed an answer in a classic 1994 paper, "The Psychology of Curiosity."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 14, 2013 11:15 PM

Are you wondering how you can stimulate curiousity with your students? This post suggests that you use information gaps and that you:

* Start with a question

* Prime the pump

* Bring in communication

Disagree. I'm pretty sure you can, as someone who has seen response acquisition happen many, many times in lab and real-life settings. It's really more about what and how we measure it, and it's becoming more realistic of an expectation to do so with the emergence of and gaining momentum of big learning data. It's really more about whether or not one puts an intentional strategy in place to monitor and measure the more typical informal learning that occurs OTJ, as in job shadowing, peer coaching, and mentoring networks. Systems like this one (attached) aren't just "managers of informal media," but depend on a well-thought-out informal learning strategy. FWIW, I am building a similar app at Oracle right now, as we speak, but with a much more specific and targeted focus. http://www.trainingindustry.com/training-outsourcing/products/research/onboarding-and-knowledge-transfer-challenges-and-best-practices.aspx
