Apps in Education: SAMR Model Using iPad Apps Poster

Apps in Education: SAMR Model Using iPad Apps Poster | Education Greece | Scoop.it

If the SAMR model is new to you here is a brief explanation of the four letters that make it up:

S- Substitution - Tech acts as a direct tool substitute, with no functional change.
A - Augmentation - Tech acts as a direct tool substitute, with functional improvement.
M- Modification - Tech allows for significant task redesign.
R - Redefinition - Tech allows for the creation of new tasks, previously inconceivable.

The SAMR Model begins with Substitution (as in read the poster from the bottom up to more clearly understand the model), moving to Augmentation, then Modification and finishing with Redefinition. 

The SAMR model is the work of Ruben R. Puentedura, Ph.D. from M.I.T. For more information on the SAMR model check out his website at http://hippasus.com/rrpweblog/.

For an indepth look you may want to check out the presentation from August 23, 2012 with the title "The SAMR Model: Background and Exemplars."

SAMR model list of suggested apps...

Shannon Soger's curator insight, January 7, 4:46 PM

Great poster, but it's important to note that what you're doing with the app will depend what SAMR level the lesson is. Keynote CAN be at Modification, but it can also be used as Substitution. For example, if a student is typing an "About Me" slide in Keynote, the technology is simply acting as a direct tool with no functional change in the task. However, if a student created an "About Me" presentation in Keynote that contained Photo Booth pictures of his/her family, and video of a family tradition that would bring the lesson to Modification. The student could not have "brought his/family" into his presentation without the use of the technology.

Theophilus's curator insight, March 19, 1:03 AM

What I like about this idea is the centrality of learning as opposed to the centrality of the device. We've discovered that sharing a device have far-reaching and positive possibilities for networking, interaction, teamwork and collaboration in the formal learning environment. OLPC is an example of a notion that goes the other way - individualism, not to mention, the complexities when trying to enable young learners to focus.

Are iPads and tablets bad for young children? | Education Greece | Scoop.it

Flewitt thinks that to deny children access to tablets is to "risk having one section of society that is growing up with skills and one section that is growing up without. You might think that it doesn't matter because they will develop those skills later. But it's not the same. They won't identify with it. It's not part of who they are … Children have been born into a world where these things exist," she says, "like we were born into a world where there were televisions, cars on the streets and packaging on food."

Teaching Smarter, Not Harder: 7 Strategies For Performance Teaching

Teaching Smarter, Not Harder: 7 Strategies For Performance Teaching | Education Greece | Scoop.it

"Good teaching is a major undertaking.

Make no mistake–teaching has never been easy. But as we come upon 2014, as a profession teaching is increasingly characterized by its possibility, accountability, and persistent mutation. Which makes it a challenge to do at all, much do well. 

The response to these challenges is a mix of building-level professional development, self-directed teacher improvement, and a troubling amount of teacher burnout. So how can you teacher smarter rather than simply grunting harder?"

Here are seven strategies you might choose to use to make your teacher smarter. They are explained in the post (and listed in the image above). For those whom may see this without the image:

* Place the big rocks first

* Use technology to automate (with suggestions on what you might do)

* Know yourself

* Teach in the moment

* Advocate for yourself

* Find new measures of success

* Open your classroom doors wide

You may find some new ideas to try out in your classroom!

Audrey's curator insight, December 9, 2013 1:34 PM

How about asking the student to teach you?  They nearly always come up with something different, which you can add to your own notes.

Students are also great at acting out scenes, particularly when they are organising other students.  Give them a mark for it.  Then test their knowledge a few days later with  a 30 minute test.  

curating for www.homeschoolsource.co.uk.  Also have a look at www.hotmoodle.com.

Reaching Students: 18 Simple Ways To Make A Lasting Impact On Your Students

Reaching Students: 18 Simple Ways To Make A Lasting Impact On Your Students | Education Greece | Scoop.it

"Reaching students emotionally may seem like a red herring, but maybe it’s not.

Inspired by Justin Tarte’s recent—and excellent–post on making a difference in the lives of others around you, I immediately thought of the legacy teachers leave in the minds (and hearts) of students. If and how you will be remembered by students may sound like a bit of an ego trip, but the truth of the matter is, if you’re not making any kind of an impression, they’re probably not learning."

Where education technology will — and won’t — take us by 2024

Where education technology will — and won’t — take us by 2024 | Education Greece | Scoop.it

Professor Larry Cuban:

 

With all of the above occurring, one would think that by 2024, age-graded schools and the familiar teaching and learning that occurs today in K-12 and universities  would have exited the rear door.

I do not think so. Getting access to powerful electronic devices for all students and teachers is surely a victory for those who believe in better technologies solving teaching and learning problems. But access does not guarantee use, especially the kind of use that vendors and ardent technophiles seek.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, December 26, 2013 10:34 AM

Better technology to solve learning and teaching problems is a great thought but should not be seen as the bottom line. Identifying the problems accurately so they can be focussed  on with purpose, practicing to put into the long term memory, motivating  and rewarding the student...have to be in the  mix too, not to mention self discipline and good mental and physical health. 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 26, 2013 11:58 AM

"None of these incremental changes herald the disappearance of K-12 age-graded public schools or the dominant patterns of teacher-centered instruction. What these gradual changes will translate into is an array of options for teaching and learning available to both teachers and students."

 

This is particularly disconcerting. Without a shift away from the way we have always done things, will education really meet the demands of th 21st Century?
