More Teaching Resources and now for both Apple iOS and Android
We are excited to announce a new and more comprehensive version of this useful teaching and learning tool in the Czech language. Version 5.0 is bigger and better with more resources.
This connection of theory, practice, and application makes the Padagogy Wheel an invaluable resource that should be on the wall of every classroom”.
„Právě toto spojení mezi teorií, praxí a aplikacemi z kola iPadagogiky činí nedocenitelný nástroj, který by měl být umístěn na zdi každé třídy.“

Relationships Relationships and Relationships
I tell teachers in every country we visit that there are three things that make you a thought-leader and great educator in today’s world of connected learners. The first is relationships then second is relationships … and you got it the third is relationships. Funny as it sounds it is not a joke and our time in the Czech republic proved it.
Last July (2016) we hired a car and drove across Southern Germany to Pilsen Czech Republic to run a couple of workshops and see Prague over the weekend. What happened was much much more and we met some wonderful dedicated and professional educators and established a strong collaboration for the future. The educational events organised were very successful including a webinar to teachers around the country in the middle of a very special BBQ event on the Sunday night. Eating great food and drinking the best Pilsner in the world, while sharing with teachers about how to get better learning outcomes by better edtech integration …. it is a new world of communication and how good is that?
In Dec 2016 thanks to the initiative of Team Mexico we published a completely revised and much more resourceful Version 5.0 of the Padagogy Wheel. As expected Team Czech as I call them were one of the first teams to ask to translate it into their first language. An amazing trip to Mexico (link to the blog post) which will also be remembered for a long time and Christmas and the Holiday Season slowed things down a little but today we are thrilled to publish the PadagogY wheel CZE Version 5.0. Not only has it more Bloom’s Taxonomy Wheel resources, 50% more apps but now we have two different versions. One for the Apple iOS platform and one for the Android platform. There is some commonality of apps but each has uniques apps for their platform as well. The Apple iOS version has all the apps linked to the iTune Store while the Android version has its apps linked to Google Play.
As well as the translation Team Czech are supporting the pedagogy and professional development message for teachers of the Padagogy Wheel with and website aimed at helping Czech speaking teachers and educators. During 2017 Padagogy.cz will populate with articles and information from around the world. We have a dream to promote best practice and new ideas about the use of edtech to support transformational teaching and learning.
