elearn Magazine: Mobile Learning in Higher education: Mobilizing staff to use technologies in their teaching | Technology and Teaching | Scoop.it
Given the ubiquity of mobile devices being used by students in their university, a group of lecturers formed an action-learning group to learn collaboratively about enhancing their teaching with mobile pedagogies. The community of learners developed a process for setting goals for themselves, and for implementing action plans to do with integrating mobile technologies in teaching. The article discusses the processes used and the lessons learned through this project. These findings have informed work done with schools that are trying to integrate mobile learning into their classrooms.

"Stategy-Tactics" with the use of "Tools".  This graphic shows the overlapping nature of information tools available online.

 

1. Multi-Media Learning Platform

2. Digital Tools for Finding Information

3. Digital Tools for Understanding Information

4. Digital Tools for Using Information

5. Digital Tools to Support Writing

 

Assignment: What specific tools do you use for each of these Tactics?

 

What can we add to these circles? Add your answers to the comment section.

 

I visited this blog to dig a little deeper and find that they have updated their model with pop-up explanations of how teachers of the 21st Century may apply this to their students either in a classroom setting or virtually across the world.

Eduardo Espinoza's curator insight, April 20, 10:09 PM

In this web site you will find important information about models for teaching. For improving education it is necessary to use new methods. In this article some of them will be presented showing the way they work. SAMR model has as a main feature of evaluating and assessing technology used in the classroom. Also it includes the TPACK model and its main characteristics. Another model mentioned here is Maslow and this consists in the knowledge that the teacher has for addressing his students due to the students have different need at learning.

Bloggie's curator insight, April 23, 1:17 AM

Technology integration in instruction requires much more than just digital literacy and technical knowledge. This means that to have the adequate tools and to know how they work, the job is all done, but a teacher needs to know how to adequate these to his students to give them a good content. An important step in the process of effective integration of technology in education is having a pedagogical approach supported by a theoretical framework to ground your technology practices inside the classroom. (Educational Technology and Mobile Leraning, 2014)

According to Abraham Maslow (1954) and his theory of hierarchy needs that teachers can use to address students learning needs… “An ideal way to assess lesson plans, courses and educational programs by asking them whether these needs are being met in their school or classroom, educators can assess how well they are applying Maslow’s hierarchy to their teaching practice". This theory is, obviously, already integrate it to the TPACK model, which is perfect, because if teachers wouldn´t know what students need, the implementing of the technology to the teaching and learning process, the TPACK model would be incomplete.
