In order to understand the Padagogy Wheel, its evolution and how to use it, Alan Carrington has created a short video to help teachers understand the significance of V4 here is a 11 min audio narrated presentation on the “evolution” of the Padagogy Wheel and how to use it.

What is particularly notable about the wheel and the explanation in the video is not simply the range of web 2.0 tools that have been related to Bloom’s Taxonomy, SAMR and the work of Daniel Pink, but Alan Carrington’s emphasis at the center that focuses on ‘Graduate Attributes and Capabilities’, a profile for students when they graduate from high school.

There are many ideas that underpin the Padagogy Wheel that parallel the ideas in the IB continuum including attributes in the Learner Profile and Approaches to Teaching and Learning (ATL).
