A Wonderful Visual on How to Use SAMR Model On Different Classroom Tasks ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Wonderful Visual on How to Use SAMR Model On Different Classroom Tasks ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | E-learning | Scoop.it

"In this quick post I want to share with you this beautiful interactive image on the SAMR model. I learned about this resource from a tweet shared by our colleague David Fife. As you can see from the image below, iPadders provided examples of how to use each classroom task according to the different SAMR categories. And in each category, a set of apps and tools are provided to help you carry out the task under study. I invite you to have a look and share with your colleagues. Enjoy"

Another example of SAMR model.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, February 23, 6:23 PM

I've heard a lot about SMAR but never really taken the time to look into it. It might be time now that I'm looking at integrating more technology into my classroom. This model clearly supports technology and expects the use of it. 

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 27, 6:42 PM

Explains a lot about how digital tech can help, though on investigation this seems to be a model developed seemingly from nowhere without much academic work behind it. Example of a simple model stating the obvious? Does it matter that it's origins are hazy? Having had the chance to look into it and its creator, it's interesting to note how popular it is and how accepted it is, without much critique. Is it really that great a model?! Just wondering! Raises a lot of questions.

The world's oldest living tree

The world's oldest living tree | E-learning | Scoop.it
At 4,841 years old, this ancient bristlecone pine is the oldest known non-clonal organism on Earth. Located in the White Mountains of California, in Inyo National Forest, Methuselah's exact location is kept a close secret in order to protect it from the public. (An older specimen named Prometheus, which was about 4,900 years old, was cut down by a researcher in 1964 with the U.S. Forest Service's permission.) Today you can visit the grove where Methuselah hides, but you'll have to guess at which tree it is. Could this one be it?

After reading this article, I am pleased to know that the world oldest non-clonal organism is located in California. It is amazing that a tree could still stand after almost 5,000 years. Hopefully, people do not destroy this tree, as it is fascinating.

Ten Questions You Should Ask Before You Flip Your Classroom - jonbergmann.com

Ten Questions You Should Ask Before You Flip Your Classroom - jonbergmann.com | E-learning | Scoop.it

As the school year starts, many teachers are wanting to implement flipped learning into their classes. Before you begin, I encourage you to answer each of the questions below. The purpose of the questions is to help teachers BEGIN the process of flipping their class. This is only the first step. Flipped Class 101 can lead to Flipped Learning, which is a second stage of the Flipped Class. Many teachers are asking for some step by step guidelines as they begin.

Andy Kenworthy's insight:

Straight forward questions to consider. Good list of tools and apps to look into further.

Karen Bonanno's curator insight, January 17, 6:47 PM

The very first question - "What will you flip?  (A lesson, a unit/chapter, a subject, or a class)" - definitely sets the context. You can dip your toe in or take the plunge. This post is well worth the time to read and then you can check out the related links.

Alexandra Koukoumialou's curator insight, January 18, 3:38 AM

Great checklist!!!

Tina Jameson's curator insight, January 23, 6:09 PM

Once you understand the purpose of a 'Flipped Classroom', you need to look at the best way to achieve success.  In addition to suggesting questions that you should ask yourself before 'flipping' your class teaching, the article lists a number of potential tools to be used for recording your offline material.

John Dalziel's curator insight, January 5, 4:59 PM

You don't have to change the way you teach, alter the curriculum, or jump through hoops to use technology.
The Answer Pad enables practitioners to simply ask questions, as they're teaching, and the learners reply just as they always do; the only difference is learners use their iPads or a browser.
Using iPads, with Pre-Created Templates - saves time so practitioners can focus on the content -
Practitioners can quickly change the templates for learners to submit responses; with one click!
As each student clicks "submit," their answers automatically begin to appear on the Practitioner's Dashboard so now, at quick glance, practitioners can privately assess their learner's understanding.
With The Answer Pad's free app, TapIt Free, their learners are able to answer questions using templates pushed out to their iPads.
To get started, you need to know two things.
Practitioners use The Answer Pad from their computer OR the Internet (Safari) on their iPads.
Learners use The Answer Pad from the TapIt Free app or a web browser.

How to use Voice Dictation on Your iPad and iPhone - teachingwithipad.org | E-learning | Scoop.it

"Do you see that microphone button at the bottom left of the iPad screen when the keyboard appears? I always knew about the dictation feature, but I never really used it before a couple weeks ago. I’m actually writing this post by speaking it, all while in the car! The accuracy is quite good, there are rarely any mistakes if you speak clearly.

 

I’ve been using it recently for a lot of things: text messages, emails, and blogging."

 


Via John Evans
Andy Kenworthy's insight:

Voice dictation works well if you speak slowly and clearly in short bursts and still quicker than typing. You can even speak the punctuation you require. Accuracy is very good though still good to proof read it just in case before submitting anything.
