This short (less than 1 minute) video looks at a three letter word and how it helps us see that a student has a growth mindset. Listen and learn.

Tony Meehan's curator insight, April 18, 2014 9:21 AM

How many of our learners come with the fixed view that they are "no good at maths", "don't get English" etc? Well, this is a good solid growth mindset come-back: " you don't get it yet......."

Guide: Using the SAMR Model to Guide Learning

Guide: Using the SAMR Model to Guide Learning | World Class Public Education | Scoop.it

Technology is an immense tool that can transform the way students learn. One of my favourite quotes which demonstrates this comes from Steve Jobs:
 “What a computer is to me is it’s the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with, and it’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.“

Just technology!

Sebastián Vásquez's curator insight, September 21, 7:13 PM
In my opinion, substitution, argumentation, modification and redefinition (SAMR) model is a very useful tool to have into account as a starting point, or as a reference one, to start thinking about the way teachers can design lessons and the role they want technology to play into the classroom. It could also be used as a way to make students reflect upon the way they normally use technology and to make them aware of other possibilities and different ways in which they could do it. Furthermore, we can use this method as a pretext to discover others and to explore other ways in which technology could help us all to enhance teaching-learning processes.
