LearningWheel is a model of digital pedagogy designed to enhance learning and develop digital literacy skills. It has several unique layers:
- Visual pedagogically informed tool
- Created by practitioners for practitioner
- Categorised in to four pedagogic ‘modes of engagement’
- Can be ‘Resource’ specific
- Can be ‘Contextualised’ to a subject area
- Can be ‘level’ specific
- Promote free and accessible digital resources
- Collaborative approach
- International perspective
- Scalability: flexible and adaptable
LearningWheel is a rich resource generated by practitioners for practitioners offering suggestions to digital What? Why? and How? Contributions for edtech resources and pedagogies focused around either a ‘digital resource’ or contextualised ‘subject’ specific each aligning to the four modes of engagement: Learning Content, Assessment, Communication, Collaboration.
The LearningWheels use ‘modes of engagement‘ adapted from Sharpe, R., Benfield, G. and Francis, R. (2006) Implementing a university e-learning strategy: levers for change within academic schools. ALT-J, 14 (2). pp. 135-151. doi: 10.1080/09687760600668503.
