How the SAMR model improves teaching with iPad | learnmakerblog | Edu Technology | Scoop.it
There’s a very easy way to make better use of the iPad in class. Simply become more aware of what you’re using the iPad for when teaching. This is where the SAMR model comes in, something I believe all teachers should be familiar with. The SAMR model is a 4 stage framework, illustrated below by the fantastic Sylvia Duckworth, creator of many great sketch notes.

Keep Your Kids Safe When They’re Using a Smartphone - MakeUseOf.com

Keep Your Kids Safe When They’re Using a Smartphone  - MakeUseOf.com | Edu Technology | Scoop.it

"Nowadays, kids want to use smartphones. Of course, most parents aren’t willing to actually buy their kids a device, but plenty have no problem letting them play with one. Of course, when a child uses a cell phone they can potentially be exposed to all kinds of dangerous things that aren’t meant for young eyes.

But the risks aren’t just for the children, but they can affect you, the parents, too. Kids could make unwanted in-app purchases, make calls to people you don’t want to talk to, they could even share photos you don’t want the world to see, and they can do plenty of other bad things. So what can you do? Check out the infographic below for the answers."

Add Coding to Your Elementary Curriculum. . . Right Now - Edutopia

Add Coding to Your Elementary Curriculum. . . Right Now - Edutopia | Edu Technology | Scoop.it

"Code.org sums up the situation nicely:

"Computer science drives innovation in the U.S. economy and society. Despite growing demand for jobs in the field, it remains marginalized throughout the U.S. K-12 education system."

There are many reasons for this. As you well know, teachers are already stretched pretty thin, and often it seems like there's just no bandwidth to add something new to a very full schedule. Additionally, some schools have few or no computers and/or tablets for classroom use.

But the earlier we introduce children to coding, the more comfortable they will be when presented with more in-depth learning opportunities in middle and high school. Also, early exposure to coding helps teach children how important it is to understand computers as the valuable tools they are rather than merely fun playthings."
