Thinking About The R in SAMR - Edudemic

Thinking About The R in SAMR - Edudemic | Success In College | Scoop.it

"The end of the school year is a time for reflection. What did we do well? What do we need to improve upon? These are the typical questions that both individuals and school districts ask at the end of the spring. However, there is another important question that I struggle to answer as well. This is the question about how we have changed? What have we done differently this year to push our thinking and the thinking of our students? To be more specific, I find myself dwelling on the Rin Dr. Ruben Puentedura’s SAMR model, a model designed to help educators integrate technology into teaching and learning."

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers - Mind/Shift

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers - Mind/Shift | Success In College | Scoop.it

With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold. Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of appsvoted on by educators around the country.

 

“I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. Some apps are best for younger students, others are more complicated, better suited for high school students. Many apps do one thing really well, but aren’t great at everything. Still others are bought, redesigned or just disappear — so it’s always good to know about an array of tools to suit the need at hand.
