Behind The Lens Lukey: Vivid Sydney 2013

Behind The Lens Lukey: Vivid Sydney 2013 | Instructional technology | Scoop.it

Last night we headed down to check out Vivid Sydney 2013. As always the light festival never fails to impress. The bridge and the Opera House were definitely the standout acts of the night. But for some reason the rest of the Quay seemed to be lacking a little in the lighting department compared to past years.

One look at how iPads may be used in the classroom with suggestions of apps to use. Some additional apps are suggested in the post with explanations on why you might choose to use them. All to often when rolling out new tools teachers become overwhelmed. This diagram was developed with the author stating: "The point is that less than 15 apps can be a starting point for learning, with the substitution of applications based on the learner’s needs and educator’s requirements."

Ipads are a great tool to use in the classroom when they are used correctly. Just using the IPad does not mean that we are integrating technology into our classes we need to use it as a tool in learning. A tool that supports students to think creatively and to collaboratively. Apps are plentiful and using the SAMR model as educators we will be able to integrate the right apps into the classroom. Just using keynote does not mean that we are allowing our students to design the wheel, we have taken a step into integrating technology but we have not taken a leap. We have modified a task that students have done previously. Dependent on learning goals and achievement and learners own abilities will depend on the apps you use. I will certainly be taking the SAMR model into consideration when using apps in the classroom.

ipads are a great tool to incorporate the higher levels of the SAMR model into learning. The best part is that it is easy and the payoff particularly when you get to the modification and redirection levels. Whilst it is easy to use ipads as a substitution and augmentation they are an easy and great way to incorporate interactive tasks into learning.

Turnitin has released a report that details the "plagiarism spectrum" and also provides examples of each. This post links to an infographic that provides the 10 types of "unoriginal work" (with examples), the frequency of each type of work, how problamatic each is, and then lists them from the highest to the lowest based in the scores (frequency and problematic) as well as including the original work and the work submitted. 

Students often struggle with understanding what plagiarism is. This infographic provides a great tool to use with your students to help them identify how easy it is to plagiarize. We then need to teach them what they need to do!

Good for coaching learners on what not to do.

Sherry Weaver's curator insight, July 22, 2013 6:04 PM

Plagiarism is often difficult for students to understand beyond the 'Cloning' stage.  This infographic may help demonstrate the slippery slope.
