The HANDSON Toolkit and the ICT tools


The toolkit, like the HANDSON project, aims at empowering educators in the inclusion of ICT tools in the classroom. To accomplish so, the toolkit walks educators – with the guidance of one or two facilitators – in the design of an ICT-based learning activity.

Since each institution and individual is using a different set of tools – Moodle, commercial LMSs, technologies of the 2.0 web, Google Apps, etc. – it is up to the facilitators organizing the workshop to select and adapt the list of possible ICT tools that needs to be provided with the workshop materials. As an example, we want to suggest the Padagogy Wheel V4.0 developed by Allan Carrington.


Like Carrington explains, the taxonomy wheel, without the apps, was first discovered on the website of Paul Hopkin’s educational consultancy website That wheel was produced by Sharon Artley and was an adaption of Kathwohl and Anderson’s (2001) adaption of Bloom (1956). The idea is to further adapt it for the pedagogy possibilities with mobile devices, in particular the iPad.

If you are a facilitator planning to run the HANDSON toolkit, think on your target audience, their context and tools available and select the best tool set for them!
