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, 2014 7:46 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.

5 Instructional Shifts to Promote Deep Learning - Getting Smart by Susan Oxnevad - DigLN, edleaders, EdTech

5 Instructional Shifts to Promote Deep Learning - Getting Smart by Susan Oxnevad - DigLN, edleaders, EdTech | Education Greece | Scoop.it
Technology is a powerful tool for learning that can be used effectively to help students develop the skills necessary to succeed in school and beyond.

Susan Oxnevad provides a great visual to help understand the instructional shifts (and in fact, there are six shifts she discusses within her article).
She states "Students can develop transferrable knowledge and skills as they engage in learning experiences that require them to construct knowledge. In order to facilitate these types of deep learning experiences, an adjustment in traditional instructional practices is necessary. These ideas are supported by the Common Core State Standards."

How Adaptive Testing Challenges Learners

How Adaptive Testing Challenges Learners | Education Greece | Scoop.it

Have you wondered what it means when people talk about adaptive testing? This post helps answer this question. After a short introducation on "the Olden Days" of testing (as in paper and pencils) you quickly find out that adpative testing will be coming to us as we move to testing on computers. Specically adaptive testing allows learners to be challenged based on their knowledge. Easier questions happen at the beginning, and based on learners answers the questions will become more difficult if answered correctly, or easier if answered incorrectly. There is a short video that explains this in more detail.

This is where it can all go so wrong. The second a child encounters a question or statement he does not understand, is the second that needs to be explained/worked with until he does understand. Otherwise you pile confusion upon confusion = pain = don't want to do = upset.

The Innovative Educator: Want to succeed in STEM? Listen to the experts!

The Innovative Educator: Want to succeed in STEM? Listen to the experts! | Education Greece | Scoop.it

This post begins with a quote from President Obama:

"“The quality of math and science teachers is the most important single factor influencing whether students will succeed or fail in science, technology, engineering and math.” From this point it veers  in a different direction, noting that the issue is that teachers "are not given the freedom to support children in ways that will produce the scientists and innovators our country needs."

If we look to our past (and our present) we will find that we are not listening to the advice that "our nation's historic inventors, scientists, and physicists (whom have shared) their advice and experiences." 

Read the article to learn the experiences of Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Richard Feyman, Michio Kaku (which includes a video where he explains "that exams are crushing curiousity out of the next generation..."), as well as individuals around today such as Aaron Iba and Jack Andraka (the student who at the age of 15 created a test for pancreatic cancer).

Perhaps the question we need to ask is how do we change the system to support the necessary learning?

Will Tablets to Replace Textbooks in Schools? | Teach.com | Education Greece | Scoop.it
Secretary of Education Arne Duncan says every school should replace textbooks with tablets or e-reader devices. What does this mean for your students' learning?

This post explores cost analysis and learning considerations. Did you know that South Korea has been using digital textbooks and report that their students have "graduation rates of six to eight percent higher than students with no access." Other studies raise questions about retention with digital access to textbooks. Without question, this is a hot button topic. For more information click through to the post.
