SAMR ~ Kathy Schrock's Guide to Everything

SAMR ~ Kathy Schrock's Guide to Everything | K-12 Web Resources | Scoop.it

by Kathy Schrock

 

"I feel teachers need to both create tasks that target the higher-order cognitive skills (Bloom's) as well as design tasks that have a significant impact on student outcomes (SAMR). A visual to illustrate that follows.

"Educators will argue they have seen redefinition tasks that only target the remembering level or have a creative assessment that is only at the augmentation level. Of course that is true, but I believe we should be planning for technology tasks, activities, and assessments that include both the higher levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy and the transformation area of SAMR model."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition) is gaining a great deal of attention currently as a way to conceptualize technology integration into teaching and learning. Schrock, one of the web's early and greatest collectors and curators, has gathered a cornucopia of excellent resources.

 

I personally find SAMR to bear considerable resemblance to the original 5 levels of tech integration posited by the Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow (ACOT) project back in the 1980's: Entry, Adoption, Adaptation, Appropriation, Invention. In fact, if one eliminates the first stage (Entry), the two frameworks seem almost identical. Does anyone have anything they'd like to say about this?

Seems like Prezi just gets better and better.  Adding the ability to allow chat between people, whilst they edit.....  you can now give them polls and questions as well.  Just so cool.  Can't wait for the opportunity to try this out.   eib   

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, June 5, 10:34 AM

Great little addition for Prezi users to create polls right within Prezi. 

N Kaspar's curator insight, June 7, 9:27 PM

Excellent tool.  And it works without a Prezi presentation for an event that spans over a week.  Very cool.

Classcraft - Make learning an adventure

Classcraft - Make learning an adventure | K-12 Web Resources | Scoop.it

Shawn Young has a class full of warriors, mages, and healers. Warriors get to eat in class, mages can teleport out of a lecture, and healers can ask if an exam answer is correct.

 

But this isn’t some Dungeons & Dragons-style fantasy. This is education as it’s happening for over 7,000 kids in more than 25 countries right now. Young, a high-school physics teacher, has been developing and refining Classcraft, his classroom-based role-playing game for the past three years, and he says it creates a collaborative and supportive learning environment that can help turn around students who are failing.
