A/Prof Jon Willis's insight:

I've joined the trial for this - basically it is turning PowerPoint into a poor man's Adobe Captivate through the addition of various kinds of interactive slides that incorporate questions and answers. Seems like a good addition to PowerPoint usability, but a little hybrid yet.

Wendy Clark's curator insight, May 2, 1:36 PM

Student are often required to create and present information on a specific topic to their peers.  The tools mentioned in this article are useful for teachers and students to use in presentation creation and slideshows.  These tools also do not require installation of any software which makes them immediately accessible to students with internet access.

A Wonderful Visual on How to Use SAMR Model On Different Classroom Tasks ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Wonderful Visual on How to Use SAMR Model On Different Classroom Tasks ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching and Learning software and topics | Scoop.it

"In this quick post I want to share with you this beautiful interactive image on the SAMR model. I learned about this resource from a tweet shared by our colleague David Fife. As you can see from the image below, iPadders provided examples of how to use each classroom task according to the different SAMR categories. And in each category, a set of apps and tools are provided to help you carry out the task under study. I invite you to have a look and share with your colleagues. Enjoy"

Another example of SAMR model.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, February 23, 3:23 PM

I've heard a lot about SMAR but never really taken the time to look into it. It might be time now that I'm looking at integrating more technology into my classroom. This model clearly supports technology and expects the use of it. 

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 27, 3:42 PM

Explains a lot about how digital tech can help, though on investigation this seems to be a model developed seemingly from nowhere without much academic work behind it. Example of a simple model stating the obvious? Does it matter that it's origins are hazy? Having had the chance to look into it and its creator, it's interesting to note how popular it is and how accepted it is, without much critique. Is it really that great a model?! Just wondering! Raises a lot of questions.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 26, 11:31 AM

I think like face-to-face pedagogy digital pedagogy is not one thing, but many things. It is certainly about relationships, but what that means is hard to generalize. I think it is always playing out in particular situations, relationships, and teaching. It takes mindfulness, attentiveness, thoughtfulness, being present, etc.
