Redefining Learning Through Screencasting ~ Edutopia

Redefining Learning Through Screencasting ~ Edutopia | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Beth Holland


"One of the most valuable tools afforded by iPads is the ability to screencast -- to combine audio, images, drawing and text on a whiteboard to create a video. Given the multitude of outputs afforded by this one type of app, what if we focused on accelerating learning through a single tool?


"As Kristen Wideen (@MrsWideen) demonstrates with her mixed first and second grade class, screencasting bridges the gap between the physical and the virtual in order to extend the learning context. Through the use of theExplain Everything app, in conjunction with a paper-­based project, she encourages meta cognition and provides students with a voice to explain their thinking. In a similar vein, consider the learning target of presenting knowledge, demonstrating understanding, and offering an explanation. Not only does the following example from MIT offer an exposition of structures, but it also incorporates persuasive writing skills and complex communication."

40 iPad Apps for SAMR Model ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

40 iPad Apps for SAMR Model ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Jim Lerman's insight:

The SAMR model enables the classification of level of technology use by educators: Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redefinition. It is rather similar to the 5 levels of tech integration described in the original Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow (ACOT) research: Entry (non- or hesitant use), Adoption, Adaptation, Appropriation, and Innovation. This post includes sample apps for each level of the SAMR model, which can be helpful for educators trying to get handle on how to use this framework productively.
