Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 5, 2013 9:49 PM

The SAMR model is one tool to use. The letters stand for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification. Redefinition. This post explores how you can use the SAMR model in the classroom, with the focus on the US constitution and connect the project to Common Core. At each step of the SAMR ladder Susan Oxnevad provides "Dr. Puentedura’ Questions and Transitions for guidance." (Dr. Puentedura is the creator of the SAMR model). 

The SAMR model is a great tool to use with teachers new to technology. It provides a scaffolding that will assist them as they gain new technology skills. This lesson provides a great overview and could be modified for lessons in other disciplines.

How to Make Your Website Both Fun and Useful With Gamification

How to Make Your Website Both Fun and Useful With Gamification | eLearning Instructional Design | Scoop.it

Discover how your business can adopt gamification marketing to engage fans better than ever.

How You Can Get Started

Your task now is to make sure your gamification elements are attractive and worth intoducing. So how can you implement gamification on your website?

Define your goals. What do you want to achieve with your website? Adjust your gamification plan to fit your overall strategy.

Put yourself in the shoes of your target user. What would you like to experience online as a customer of this particular product or service?

Do some brainstorming. Try to analyze your experience using other websites. Is there anything you would like to be more visual, educating or competitive?

Be both a trend follower and a trend setter. As the latter is quite difficult, don't be afraid to take after other people's practices if you find them appealing. Develop your unique fun elements but don't give up on the classics.

Think about the design for your rewards, leaderboards and gameplay options. How can your website become an engaging source for customers? How can you make it as flexible and entertaining as possible? You can use customer feedback here.

Integrate your brand with the chosen storyline but don't be pushy about it. Your task is to engage, not disgust.

Combine attractive design and compelling game mechanics.  Check the website yourself now and make sure the loading times aren't too long.

Always recognize your individual customers. Small distinctions are not costly but they give customers the irreplaceable sense of self-importance. So why be stingy with that little badge or reward?

Do some measuring every week. Are people actually playing your game? Remember that gamification is not all fun and games – you need to get results and measure them with the appropriate metrics.

Bloom’s Taxonomy Paint Palette

Bloom’s Taxonomy Paint Palette | eLearning Instructional Design | Scoop.it

"An article I read this week had me thinking about Bloom’s Taxonomy and what learning really is.  It led to me coming up with a new graphic for Bloom’s Taxonomy, this one a Paint Palette.  I like thinking about Bloom’s in the form of an artist paint palette because each color has equal importance.  For an artist, the greatest beauty comes in the mixing of colors.  Using a multitude of shades and blends on a canvas.  I think the same can be said of learning."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 19, 2013 2:14 PM

This is a work in progress based on student work at Anastasis Academy. We know that we would like our students to be able to demonstrate their understanding in a variety of ways, but often they find one way and that becomes the only way (from their perspective). In this post Kelly Tenkely describes her experiences with students at Anastasis Academy and how this experience has led her to create this paint palette that will contain two additional components.

Along with this palette you will find a painting that provides "students ideas for different outcomes and evidences of learning" and a component that is still a work in progress, that will "an app and website catalog organized by the same colors so that students can be introduced to the many options they have for the different types of learning and producing." You can see the page with apps in this post that are specific to Create and additional pages with apps will be posted in the future.

Sue Alexander's curator insight, July 21, 2013 9:40 PM

An excellent analogy, and a visual my students will surely relate to in the Art Room. I think this will be helpful as they plan and reflect upon their own learning goals.

Jessica Rebstock's curator insight, July 22, 2013 11:55 AM

I appreciate that this view of Bloom's Taxonomy is less linear. Every course needs a different blend of Bloom's learning levels.
