SAMR devient aussi en francophonie un modèle bien accepté. Ca vaut la peine d'en tenir compte dans la construction de dispositifs.

SAMR model in practice.

لبنانية♥سعودية's curator insight, June 13, 1:47 AM

I cant even begin to describe how the concept of SAMR changed my teaching perspective. I was stuck at SA level. But now so many improvements in my teaching approaches.

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | TechLib | Scoop.it
A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

I like the breakdown presented in this article as well as the emphasis on using apps as critical thinking tools, not just creation tools.

Privacy is Dead. Google and Facebook know everything about YOU!

Privacy is Dead. Google and Facebook know everything about YOU! | TechLib | Scoop.it
Privacy is not about data - it's about people. Privacy is not about secrecy, it is not about hiding information and is not a technology problem - Privacy is a social problem. Privacy is concerned with the proper handling of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and respecting the dignity of the individual to whom the information refers. Think you have any privacy when it comes to a social networking site? Think again. Just take a look at who has invested in the site and open your eyes.
Bronwyn Desjardins's insight:

At ISTE 2014 I shared my concerns about privacy on Google. While I think Google can do a lot for education, the amount of data it has access to and control it has concerns me as a teacher and protector of my students' privacy.
