How can you make peer lesson observation more of a formative process rather than a summative judgement?

A collaborative, solution-oriented approach is becoming the trend rather than an individualistic, problem-oriented approach.

One look at how iPads may be used in the classroom with suggestions of apps to use. Some additional apps are suggested in the post with explanations on why you might choose to use them. All to often when rolling out new tools teachers become overwhelmed. This diagram was developed with the author stating: "The point is that less than 15 apps can be a starting point for learning, with the substitution of applications based on the learner’s needs and educator’s requirements."

Nicole Kotoski's curator insight, April 1, 2014 10:56 PM

Ipads are a great tool to use in the classroom when they are used correctly. Just using the IPad does not mean that we are integrating technology into our classes we need to use it as a tool in learning. A tool that supports students to think creatively and to collaboratively. Apps are plentiful and using the SAMR model as educators we will be able to integrate the right apps into the classroom. Just using keynote does not mean that we are allowing our students to design the wheel, we have taken a step into integrating technology but we have not taken a leap. We have modified a task that students have done previously. Dependent on learning goals and achievement and learners own abilities will depend on the apps you use. I will certainly be taking the SAMR model into consideration when using apps in the classroom.

Karen Barlow's comment, April 11, 2014 6:44 AM
ipads are a great tool to incorporate the higher levels of the SAMR model into learning. The best part is that it is easy and the payoff particularly when you get to the modification and redirection levels. Whilst it is easy to use ipads as a substitution and augmentation they are an easy and great way to incorporate interactive tasks into learning.

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | Early Childhood | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.

 

Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products.

Imagine my surprise and joy when I realized that I had arrived at constructionism prior to knowing that such a theory even existed. I believe that thousands of other educators are unknowingly working within the constructionist paradigm as well. Although many within the Maker movement are aware that it has it’s roots in constructionism, the movement is gaining impressive momentum without the majority of Makers realizing that there is a strong theoretical foundation behind their work.

 

After I came to understand this connection between my practices and the supporting theoretical framework I was better able to focus and refine my practice. Even more importantly, I felt more confident and powerful in forging ahead with further experiments in the learning situations I design for my learners.

Looks interesting,thanks.
Vicki Mast's curator insight, September 13, 2013 11:24 AM

I just downloaded the free version which looks good, but may have to upgrade. The features look well worth the $3.99 price. You can move & resize your drawn objects, zoom in/out, etc. If you're working on creating "flipped classroom" videos, or how-to tutorials this may be what you need. Check out their website and user guide for the details.
