This is a great 'connector' between students, teachers, and tech!

Trisha Collins's curator insight, June 19, 2014 7:33 PM

Too often the word on the street is “my school or class has new iPads but we don’t know what to do with them.” The best part about these devices is that they get the learning into the actual hands of students- make learning “hands-on.” That is NOT a new concept. Dewey, Montessori, David Kolb knew this long before the digital age- constructivism is one of the most effective ways to learn anything.

Three Options for Independent Reading on the iPad - Primary Preoccupation

Three Options for Independent Reading on the iPad - Primary Preoccupation | iPads for Learning | Scoop.it
Primary teachers (and in fact all teachers) are always on the look out for quality reading options for their students. This is true for digital format books as well as more traditional book forms. When my six and seven-year old students read independently on their iPads, I want to offer them good options as well. Fortunately, I have found three worthwhile options for my six and seven year olds.

A Must See Chart on SAMR Model and iPad Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must See Chart on SAMR Model and iPad Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads for Learning | Scoop.it

"Technology integration in instruction is a process that starts with setting out clearly defined objectives and ends with assessing learning outcomes against these objectives, and all along the way several tools and strategies are employed to attend to the overall performance of this process. Hence, the first question teachers need to ponder when thinking about using technology in class is not what kind of technology to use but what do they want to achieve behind using this technology? On a deeper level, they need to find answers to questions such as: Does this technology constitute a a good addition to the learning task ?  Can the same learning task be performed without using technology? These and several other questions  should come to the forefront when you start planning a technology-based learning activity.

Useful application of SAMR for Primary Maths 

A/Prof Jon Willis's curator insight, June 16, 2014 7:14 PM

SAMR models - Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redefinition - are a new idea to me, but very seductive.

Julie Lindsay's curator insight, January 27, 2015 3:58 PM

Redefinition including working with students around the world in a 'flattened' learning environment using new technologies - of course!

Free or low cost apps

A/Prof Jon Willis's curator insight, June 16, 2014 7:12 PM

Although this is a relatively trivial example, the idea of a Bingo approach to skills building is an interesting one - at UQ we're using a passport as part of engagement processes with Aboriginal school students visiting the university. For every activity they participate in, there is a unique stamp for their passport. The bingo card idea is similar so that across a semester, students fill up their bingo card with activities that build their skills in a range of domains, or across a range of technologies or tools.
