Kay, the image looks like its from a stock agency, and we don't have the rights to give you permission to use it. However, there are a ton of other illustrated pigs available for your use. Take a look at this search of creative commons:

There should be a pig in there that you can use. :-)

May I please use your pig on my question sheet?!?!? I also want to create a "HOG WILD" set of question cards with that little pink pig on them. So, your permission to use your pig would be greatly appreciated! I have always been a firm believer in developing mathematical thinking through questions. Ever since one of my students told me that she realized she was asking herself the same questions during homework that I asked them during class (and it was helping her!), I've been trying to get more of my students to do that. So, after reading this article, I thought it would be cute to make a set of question cards with that little pig on each card. They could be used as "random questions" during small group or whole class discussions, or as scaffolding questions for students as they're working on their CW / HW. Thanks! Kay

Jufminka,

How did you create your iPad app? Are you a programmer or did you find some kind of software to use? I found a way for my students to create Android apps for through AppInventor but every resource for creating iPhone and iPad apps seems to cost money. Thanks.

Dear Jufminka,

Thank you for posting! I visited your site and absolutely LOVE your work! One problem: I am on Android and PC--is there any chance you can make your resources adaptable for this platform? On a side note, I spent some time in Amsterdam and Rotterdam last year and your society is a dream for educators...thank you for sharing!

What a great read! The Englisg language allows the forming of the GREATEST acronyms! Helas, Dutch language... not so much.
I teach wonderful kids in primary school and am SO passionate about asking questions and getting kids to ask great ones ... I made a website AND an iPad app solely about that! :-) www.ihots.eu Hope you forgive my self promotion here - but would really love feedback on the app or site...?

Ben, I love this quote. It's so very true:

"I find it very difficult, to come up with thoughtful, engaging and Higher Order Genius questions while I am teaching. It's kind of like trying to build the airplane while you are flying it."

I'm not sure how WILD HOG it is, but one interesting technique is to have the students come up with a question or questions. The process should reveal an area of interest for learning and an opportunity for engagement.
