Maddie Grant's curator insight, June 12, 2014 6:24 PM

In those days the company’s U.S.-centric mindset included a high “command and control” culture. Decisions were made autocratically in the U.S. from a U.S. point of view. Garry realized that if the company was to extend its brand globally, that mindset had to change.

When Garry was made CEO in 1997, he began implementing a culture change to a less siloed, less information hoarding work environment that trusted and respected its people.

“We needed a work environment that treasures learning and teaching, fairness, candor, dignity, respect, perseverance … and fun,” Garry said. WD-40 Company needed to eliminate the fear of failure in the hearts and minds of team leaders and members. Garry reframed failure into “learning moments,” where team members share insights so everyone can benefit from their learning.

This is very true. While we try and reach up to the highest post (redefinition) in the SAMR model we should also be looking at the learning that takes place.  Technology should always support the learning of our students. To enhance and build the process. We need to provide each student with a learning experience relevant to them and reflect on the ways we incorporate the technology within the classroom. We need to teach WITH ICT as opposed to learning about it.  I like that this model makes you think about how you use technogy within the classroo. It can make for re-evaluation and improvement about working with technology.

The SAMR model is very practical in modern day learning, it is interesting to learn that the focus is on using ICT to facilitate learning.

Channylt's comment, April 11, 2014 2:55 AM
I agree with @Nicole Kotoski that technology should support the learning of the students, and I the SAMR pool diagram is a smart way to look at the model rather than a goal to reach the Redefinition stage - I see it as being a model to see how technology can facilitate learning and where certain technologies fit in that model or how technology can be used in learning whether its just at the enhancement phase where technology is used to functionally change the way we are learning e.g. reading a hardcover book to reading an e-book the technology is changed but we still have to read the content… Transformational learning comes from technology re-defining and re-designing how we learn, what we learn that have previously been inconceivable.

Stephen Dale I've been following Dion Hinchcliffe for many years as well. You're fortunate to have met him in London. You bring up a very good point about monitoring our every move. As you say, there is a price we will pay one way or another for privacy and time will tell how this will all shake out in the end. I'd love to connect with you again, it's been a while. As you can see I launched Curatti and we've been very well received. Hope things are going well with you, let's catch up soon.

Sound good Jan. I have been following Curatti since you launched - it's one of my top sources for news/content. Think we should arrange a Skype call sometime - unless you plan to visit London, in which case lunch is on me!

I am looking forward to when technology solutions become a ubiquitous part of our lives in a positive way. A way that makes us all more productive and hopefully working less and living better lives :-)

This is a great resource as it stresses that the importance of technology integration is for the benefit of the kids not for the sake of using technology.  This is the first source I've found that discusses the importance of how technology is integrated, not whether it is good or bad to integrate it.  I think it is an interesting and different take from what I had previously been looking at and will likely look more into this aspect of technology in the classroom.
