Do you feel overwhelmed at the choices available of technology and apps? Do you use the same technology all the time? Are you unsure that what you chose is the best one for the job?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then this Tooltime is for you. In just 30 minutes, we will explore the SAMR model – substitution, augmentation, modification and redefinition.

Then using Blooms taxonomy we will consider what you want students to do, and guided by these activities help you choose the technology that corresponds and supports this, using the pedagogy wheel.

What is Tooltime?

Tooltime is a series of short informal showcases, where staff from all areas are given the opportunity to share a gadget, tool, app, workflow or technique. The technologies showcased can range from anything that could engage learners, streamline teaching or are simply time savers. Sessions do not have to formally address teaching and learning concepts in-depth, but rather recognise the technology’s potential capabilities in this area. Each session in the series will run for 30 minutes and are intended for either academic or professional staff.


The Tooltime hosts make no claims on the utility of tools and do not necessarily provide support for the gadgets, widgets or workflows presented.
