Alan Ovens's curator insight, January 27, 2013 3:03 PM

An interesting model to think about the evolution towards using more tech in your teaching.  I'm always critical of models that reflect such change as linear and lock step, but given that caveat, the samr model does representdifferent ways ofconceptual using theintegration of technology into teaching.

Free Technology for Teachers: Use Evernote and StudyBlue to Create Online Flashcards

Free Technology for Teachers: Use Evernote and StudyBlue to Create Online Flashcards | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

" This morning on iPad Apps for School http://ow.ly/h9jCk   I wrote a review of the StudyBlue iPad app. That app allows students to create and share flashcards on their iPads. StudyBlue can also be used in a web browser. If students use StudyBlue in a web browser they can create flashcards from the notes that they have stored in their Evernote accounts. Students can import individual notes or entire notebooks from their Evernote accounts. After the notes are imported students can copy and paste text, images, and links to use in their StudyBlue flashcards. Click here http://ow.ly/h9jDk   to try it today. "

Raki's Rad Resources: 7 FREE iPad Apps to Use as a Ticket Out the Door | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"Using a learning ticket out the door has been around for awhile, but this week, I’ve started using my iPad to help take the prep work out of the ticket process.  One of my complaints about many iPad apps is that they are just big quizzes.  However, since that is exactly what I need for a quick ticket out the door, I finally put two and two together this week and started standing at the door with my iPad instead of a set of index cards with questions.

How To Cite An App

How To Cite An App | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"After seeing the correct way to cite a tweet last year, it brought to mind the need to cite increasingly diverse media forms. No longer books, periodicals, and mere websites, information is becoming increasingly refracted from more nuanced media forms.

 

So it was with great delight that I found out the correct way to cite an iTunes app in APA style, courtesy of a letter from Jeff Hume-Pratuch and Rebecca Raszweski. It includes details on how to cite an app from iTunes. Presumably the process would be parallel for Android."

Content Curation Visualization

Content Curation Visualization | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"As a librarian one of my responsibilities is to curate content for our library users, but I must admit that I hadn’t given much thought to content curation until the convergence of a study leave and this MOOC brought it to the forefront of my mind. Over the years I have experimented with various tools to manage the flow of information and I am constantly trying new ones.  I thought it might be useful to visualize the content curation process, so sketched out a somewhat simplified version of the flow."

"Regardless of the subject, good teaching is good teaching.  One new piece of tech does not change all that we know about instruction.  As we develop curriculum and practices in technology we use strategies and tools we know work for students.  We scaffold their learning and provide support when needed.  Just like we do in reading, writing, math and content we make anchor charts for technology that guide students along the way."

ICT For Educators: Integrating technology in PE

ICT For Educators: Integrating technology in PE | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

" I recently had the opportunity to join our PE team at a PD hosted by Jarrod Robinson http://thepegeek.com/about/ ; - also known as the PE Geek http://thepegeek.com/ ; - on integrating technology into PE. Jarrod introduced us to a number of great tools and resources to help PE teachers make better use of technology in their lessons. As he pointed out, professional coaches have long been using cutting edge technology to train athletes and mobile devices now make it possible for anyone to access these kinds of tools at a fraction of the cost and with much greater ease. Our PE teachers enjoyed the practical, hands-on focus of the PD and have already started implementing what they have learned into their classes."
