    •  
    • Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy (Andrew Churches)
    • My 20 steps to giving pupils wings through the use of FORUMS
    • 1. Don’t be afraid of giving them something to THINK about.
    • X. Is there anything wrong with this picture? A – Yes B - No
    • Y. Look at this picture and describe anything you find unusual about it
    • 2. Help them to realise that things are not always what they seem.
    •  
    • Sometimes things get LOST IN TRANSLATION
    • 3. Employ the ‘Mentos and Coke effect’ – the oddest combinations can yield surprising results
    •  
    •  
    • What JAMES SUROWIECKI in his book calls: THE WISDOM OF CROWDS or How the many are smarter than the few!
    • 4. Look at things from a different angle.
    •  
    •  
    •  
    • 5. Just like the Naica Crystals – things don’t have to stop growing just because…
    •  
    •  
    • 6. Don’t be afraid of a bit of self-congratulation.
    • 7. NEVER assume you know more than your students do.
    • 8. Be like the Nail House – don’t just do something ‘cos everyone else is.
    • And inspire
    • 9. Sometimes we need to work on our own or go out on a limb, to try an idea that works.
    • 10. Try not to be a puppetmaster – let the students have control.
    • 11. Give them ‘situated meaning’ See the work of James Paul Gee
    •  
    • 12. Not all contributors are alike
    • Pat Parslow & Shirley Earley created this excellent resource, reminding us of the importance of Digital Identity.
    •  
    • 13. Sometimes kids will just work things out for themselves – ON THEIR OWN
    • 14. Don’t let one person shout too loud.
    • 15. Who’s got the authority?
    • 16.It’s important we ALL pull together
    • 17. Be Stetson Kennedy I started the VERBAL Web 2.0 As described in Freakonomics by Levitt & Dubner
    • 18. Give them opportunities they will NEVER forget.
    • 19. Be a sympathetic MENTOR
    • 20. Stick at it when it can seem like an impossible task….
