The Padagogy Wheel visual places the idea of motivation and capabilities at the center, which gets at one of its more compelling characteristics as a model – the meshing of technology, thinking, and student motivation. Many of the failures in #edtech are failures in #edtech integration, and frameworks like the Padagogy wheel attempt to clarify the relationship between “big picture” elements. Seeing the pieces–tablets, apps, learning goals, cognitive actions, etc.–and how they work together is everything. Without that vision, any bit of #edtech is limp and lifeless.

When the above quote was published I was excited. It is such a succinct explanation of what the Padagogy Wheel is trying to achieve. It has been 2 years since V3 was published and over a 100,000 copies of the PDF poster have been downloaded from this blog, I am truly honoured by the interest in the model. Two years is a long time in the development of technology enhanced education and tablet app development has come a long way. It is time for the next generation of the Padagogy Wheel. Today V4.0 goes public…. yeeess!
