SAMR and Bloom's Taxonomy: Assembling the Puzzle

SAMR and Bloom's Taxonomy: Assembling the Puzzle | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it
Highlights and Sticky Notes:
Augmentation/Apply: Using a simple yet powerful tool for visualization like GeoGebra, students explore the concepts covered in the resources described in 1., and solve related standard problems. The scope and number of the problems is not governed by what is available in the “back of the book,” but rather driven by the evolution of student understanding, as measured by suitable formative assessment processes.
Substitution/Remember: Students use ebooks and other Open Education Resources to acquire basic knowledge about statistical tools and procedures.
2. Substitution/Understand: At the same time, they begin a process of gathering information online describing applications of these statistical tools to an area of interest to them, using simple bookmark aggregation services (e.g., Diigo, Delicious) to collect and tag these resources, relating them to the knowledge gained in 1.

9 Reading Apps and Tools for the Elementary Classroom

9 Reading Apps and Tools for the Elementary Classroom | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it
Reading has always been a foundational skill. Not only does it influence how we interact with the world but it is still the medium by which many students learn. And yet, statistics show that between 46 and 51% of American adults have an income well below the poverty level because of their inability to read. This is a scary fact, and with reading becoming more digital, it is important that educators start looking into how they can teach this important skill in a new digital age. Reading is only one piece of the school puzzle, of course, but it is …

11 Edtech Tools That Make Formative Assessment a Breeze

11 Edtech Tools That Make Formative Assessment a Breeze | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it
Formative assessment is a chance for teachers to put their creative and evaluative skills to the test. Formative assessment occurs during a learning situation. For example, while reading a short story, a teacher might want to check for understanding by asking questions focused on the topic of concern. Formative assessment implies ongoing communication between the teacher and students, in the form of observations, questioning, and discussions. These interactions provide valuable feedback about students’ communication skills, social skills, and level of achievement. Classroom interactions are rich sources of information, and certain techniques can help make the most of these opportunities for …
