Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 4, 2014 8:34 PM

Do you use iPads in your school? Do you work with Bloom's Taxonomy and/or SAMR? Are you interested in seeing how you might combine Bloom's and SAMR using specific apps? If so, click through to this post.

The post takes apps and organizes in three categories:

* Consumption - which includes Knowledge and Analysis (split into Activity and Gamification)

* Collaboration - which includes Application and Synthesis (split into Assessment and Cloud Storage)

* Creation - which includes Comprehension and Evaluate (split into Multimedia & Design and Multimedia Texts)

Then read on and see how you might take these same areas and apply them to SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition).

This is worth a look even if you do not have iPads. The ideas of placing work into the three Cs of Consumption, Collaboration and Creation may be applied to work that students do, with or without technology.

There are several reasons why you would be thinking to use collaborative white boards in your classroom . As a teacher, you can use these collaborative web tools to explain abstract hard to grasp concepts to your students through  diagrams, illustrative drawings, mindmaps...etc .

Wikis Let Students Actively Contribute to Their Learning

Wikis Let Students Actively Contribute to Their Learning | Education Greece | Scoop.it

Have you considered using a wiki in your classroom to help students actively contribute to their learning? In this article Jason Bedell discusses his experiences using wikis with classes from Grade 4 though high school seniors and provides a variety of reasons. "The technology relies on the ideas of social constructivism that suggest that students consistently learn from one another, hone their own understanding, and actively create new knowledge in a discussion format, instead of passively receiving it in a typical lecture format..."

He provides a video that show how to set up and use a wiki using Wikispaces, and discusses how wikis promote collaboration and help make connections (and they are great for sharing professional knowledge). If you would like to use wikis this year with your class this article will assist you.

What Is Project-Based Learning? - Edudemic | Education Greece | Scoop.it

Have you wondered what Project-Based Learning? Are you interested in watching a short video by Common Craft, a well know organization that creates short animated films that discuss the key elements of the topic at hand? The Buck Institute for Education commissioned this video (and they are know for Project-Based Learning). 

Why concern yourself with Project-Based Learning? A key reason is that projects help promote 21st century learning including  collaboration, communication and critical thinking skills.
