Guide: Using the SAMR Model to Guide Learning

Guide: Using the SAMR Model to Guide Learning | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

Technology is an immense tool that can transform the way students learn. One of my favourite quotes which demonstrates this comes from Steve Jobs:
 “What a computer is to me is it’s the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with, and it’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.“

Sebastián Vásquez's curator insight, September 21, 7:13 PM
In my opinion, substitution, argumentation, modification and redefinition (SAMR) model is a very useful tool to have into account as a starting point, or as a reference one, to start thinking about the way teachers can design lessons and the role they want technology to play into the classroom. It could also be used as a way to make students reflect upon the way they normally use technology and to make them aware of other possibilities and different ways in which they could do it. Furthermore, we can use this method as a pretext to discover others and to explore other ways in which technology could help us all to enhance teaching-learning processes.

A Chart Featuring Some of The Best Augmented Reality Apps to Use With Students

A Chart Featuring Some of The Best Augmented Reality Apps to Use With Students | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

The success of AR in education is attributed to the increasing availability of mobile apps designed specifically to help learners leverage the power of AR in their learning. Below are some very good AR apps to try out with your students. Augmented reality is making some huge inroads in the field of education. More and more teachers are incorporating this relatively new technology in their classrooms. Augmented reality is also redefining the notion of learning by adding a layer of interactivity, engagement and vividness to students learning experiences. Teachers have been using augmented reality in many varied ways and across different school subjects, this post from Edutopia provides some good examples in this regard. The success of AR in education is attributed to the increasing availability of mobile apps designed specifically to help learners leverage the power of AR in their learning. Below are some very good AR apps to try out with your students. This is a work in progress and we will be adding more to the list in the future. Enjoy

This research should help all online teachers lighten up and step up to the power of video technology in the online classroom. 

 

My KEY take away: "Videos produced with a more personal feel could be more engaging than high-fidelity studio recordings."

 

Use your excitement about your subject create presence and engagement in your online classes.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, September 10, 6:47 PM

Interesantes resultados y recomendaciones que surgen de un estudio realizado a partir del análisis de la data recogida de la observación de 6.9 millones de sesiones de videos por parte de estudiantes de cuatro cursos edX y de entrevistas con equipos de producción de dichos videos. Se midió el nivel de interés (engagement) que estos videos provocaron en los estudiantes de manera indirecta a través del tiempo en que estos permanecían observando el video. Aún cuando esta no es ni siquiera una buena medida para comprender el impacto de estos contenidos multimedia en el aprendizaje de los alumnos, el estudio brinda algunas interesantes luces sobre como deben producirse estos videos para fines educativos y conseguir al menos que los estudiantes no se aburran rápidamente con ellos.

The benefits of creating a website for your classroom

The benefits of creating a website for your classroom | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
If creating a classroom website remains at the low end of your priority list, it’s understandable. Maybe you have been thinking about building one for a long time, but who has the time? Unfortunately, classroom websites take the backseat far too often. Either the website is too complicated to update on a regular basis and ends up being neglected, or perhaps you’re underwhelmed by the district issued site. Maybe it’s just a little too boring and not an accurate or interesting reflection of you, as a teacher. Before you brush off the idea of creating a website, take a brief moment to consider how it can benefit you, your students, and your class as a whole.

Yeison Ossa Trejos's curator insight, September 9, 5:21 PM
As teachers, it can be a bit difficult to deal with the unlimited number of technological tools and resources that come up everyday. However, if we spend time selecting and learning how to use those that we consider can best fit our educational needs, it will certainly pay off. Among the hundreds or even thousands of digital tools available for teachers on the web, a website may be of great help. Creating your own site may have benefits your students, their parents and for yourself. Personally, I believe that a 21st century teacher must be skillful enough to handle technology and to integrate it into his professional field so that both learning and teaching processes can be successfully addressed in a ever-growing digital era.

Online Tools and Resources That Support Academic Honesty

Online Tools and Resources That Support Academic Honesty | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
Students have invented lots of ways to cheat and, with the growing use of technology in education, new cheating options appear on a regular basis.

Although it seems an overwhelming problem to address, there’s no need to despair. Do your due diligence–stop violations and cultivate honesty among students by also finding technology that works for you.

Check out the list of 10 edtech tools below that can help promote academic honesty while fitting nicely into daily routines and improving the quality of your educational efforts.

Students use technology in most of the cases in a wrong way. For example, to cheat but exists some resources and tools that help teachers to promote honesty, some of them are: unplag that is able to recognize coincidences between students texts or homework and the place where was taken, this tool helps students to make a pre-check to look for unconscious similarities, ProctorU thanks to this tool, teachers can observed all students movements, what are they doing during tests, Google Scholar this resourse is so useful to find scholarly literature more appropriate for academic tasks without plagiarism.

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, September 21, 1:45 PM

Free Technology for Teachers: Google Expeditions Will Soon Be Available to iPad Users

Last week Google released another round of updates to their Expeditions program. Expeditions is the virtual reality program that lets students experience immersive views of more than 200 places including the International Space Station, coral reefs, the Taj Mahal, and the White House.

Currently, to experience Expeditions you must have a Google Cardboard viewer and a supported Android device. According to last week's Google for Education blog post, soon you will be able to experience Expeditions on iPads. On your iPad you will be able to use full screen mode to view the Expeditions virtual field trips.
