Guide: Using the SAMR Model to Guide Learning | Technology In Edu | Scoop.it

Technology is an immense tool that can transform the way students learn. One of my favourite quotes which demonstrates this comes from Steve Jobs:
 “What a computer is to me is it’s the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with, and it’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.“

Sebastián Vásquez's curator insight, September 21, 7:13 PM
In my opinion, substitution, argumentation, modification and redefinition (SAMR) model is a very useful tool to have into account as a starting point, or as a reference one, to start thinking about the way teachers can design lessons and the role they want technology to play into the classroom. It could also be used as a way to make students reflect upon the way they normally use technology and to make them aware of other possibilities and different ways in which they could do it. Furthermore, we can use this method as a pretext to discover others and to explore other ways in which technology could help us all to enhance teaching-learning processes.

Gust MEES's curator insight, May 14, 9:16 PM

One of the most difficult parts of our jobs as educators is to create a learning environment where our learners are engaged and meet content and curriculum goals. From my experience, the single most important challenge that needs to be addressed to earn engagement in our classrooms is to develop a culture of learner autonomy--allowing and encouraging learners to take control of their own learning. There are many barriers that we, as educators, must work to clear in order to create a strong culture that allows our learners to feel comfortable with working toward a common goal in the way that works best for them.

Helen Teague's curator insight, May 22, 10:26 AM
Kathleen McClaskey's insight: Brian shares how he transformed his classroom to a learner-centered environment and what happened in the process with his learners. Here is a glimpse of his journey: "As teachers, it is difficult to let go of control and to let our learners find the best ways for them to achieve content and curriculum goals. To be clear, our role in the classroom needs to change, and I think the trend in education is moving the correct direction--achieving and creating a learner-driven, personalized atmosphere is the key. Providing learners with the tools to succeed should be the goal, and we should focus on allowing them to use those tools in the way that works best individually. Instead of providing the blueprint for learners to achieve a goal, educators should be allowing and guiding them in designing, developing, and implementing their plan for accomplishing it. When this happens, drastic changes take place regarding engagement in our classrooms and ownership of learning appears, leading to a higher level of achievement."

What the flip? Exploring technologies to support a flipped classroom

What the flip? Exploring technologies to support a flipped classroom | Technology In Edu | Scoop.it
A flipped classroom is one where the lectures become the homework and the traditional homework tasks take place in the lesson time. This enables students to attend sessions with an understanding of the subject and to conceptualise and build upon it through doing exercises in class, with you, as the tutor, on hand to answer questions and explore the topic in more detail

It might have been the banana piano. Or perhaps the bongos, made from lemons that students had plucked from the citrus tree at school. Elizabeth Little, who teaches middle school math and science, doesn’t know exactly which of the hands-on projects she introduced to her remedial math class turned the class around. But by the end of the school year, all her math students, not just those needing extra support, were clamoring for more math.

So, why just use technology, when you can build it, right? But first—students need the programming know-how in order to do so… And that begins with you!

Whether you choose to embrace the concept or not, it’s becoming more and more important to equip students with coding skills. It’s the new literacy for a generation of students growing up in a digitally-connected world.

Raising awareness about the importance of digital reputation management might save us of making mistakes that could put our lives (or any field) at risk. An image, a post or a comment could end up being a disaster for our professional fields if they are not along with social conventions about social behaviours. In additon, as social networks allow people to get a fast and massive access to information, we need to pay closer attention to the kind of content we publish since these spaces, nowadays, can even play the role of a resume for a job interview (as Scoop.it slogan says, "You are the content you publish"). My suggestion, then, could be to have our several social domains in separate virtual spaces instead of migled into only one, or limiting our virtual spaces to determined or previously set objectives.

Snapchat Essentials for Curious Newbies

Snapchat Essentials for Curious Newbies | Technology In Edu | Scoop.it

Snapchat is arguably the most popular social media app around. But if you’re one of those folks who’s downloaded it to your smartphone and you're still not quite sure what to do (and you don’t want to ask one of the teenagers you know), here’s a quick getting-started guide to show you the basics.

What is Snapchat?

One of the things that Snapchat is best known for is the ephemeral nature of the content - you take a photo or video and send it to a friend and they have a limited number of seconds (up to 10 seconds maximum) to view the content before it disappears.

Before you send your snap, you can mark it up with text, stickers, or special lenses that give your selfie a silly look (big cartoon eyes, puking rainbows… it sounds odd but quickly becomes strangely charming)....

Formative Assessment Works

Formative assessment or assessment for learning is a proven strategy to improve student achievement.

Beth Crisafulli Hofer's comment, January 10, 6:54 PM
I'm going to add some of these to our framework!
LET Team's curator insight, March 19, 6:44 PM

“Formative assessment is a planned process in which teachers or students use assessment-based evidence to adjust what they're currently doing.


• Formative assessment is a planned process in which assessment-elicited evidence of students' status is used by teachers to adjust their ongoing instructional procedures or by students to adjust their current learning tactics.


• Because formative assessment has been shown to improve students' in-class learning, many educators have adopted it in the hope that it will also raise their students' performances on accountability tests.


• The expanded use of formative assessment is supported not only by instructional logic but also by the conclusions of a well-conceived and skillfully implemented meta-analysis by Paul Black and Dylan Wiliam.” (Popham, 2008)After synthesizing over 250 publications, Black and Wiliam, concluded that formative assessment is perhaps the most effective educational practice when it comes to improving academic achievement. In addition, formative assessment has a disproportionately beneficial impact on low‐achieving students. http://www.hanoverresearch.com/media/The-Impact-of-Formative-Assessment-and-Learning-Intentions-on-Student-Achievement.pdfIn 


 


In 2009, John Hattie published a meta-meta-analysis of education research called Visible Learning: A synthesis of over 800 meta-analyses relating to achievement. In that study, Hattie found that formative assessment, when done correctly, had the highest effect size on student learning compared with other classroom strategies.


 


In recent years, neuroscientists have reported that retrieval practice—recalling and applying previously learning—had a huge impact (as much as 50%) on student retention of learned content. Combining retrieval practice and formative assessment can significantly reduce forgetting and increase retention of lesson content.


 


Each school’s instructional framework provides teachers with numerous opportunities to use formative assessments in the beginning and ending of a lesson as well as when engaging students and during student practice in the body of the lesson. Teachers use formative assessment to see if the students have mastered the content of the lesson—did they get it?


 


Note that mastery means that the students can demonstrate both that they ‘know’ the content and that they can apply what they learned to future or past learning.


 


Formative Assessment in the Beginning and Ending of the Lesson


 


• Purposeful Learning – The expectation that all activities be purposeful means that teachers always have something to check on or assess for understanding.


• Focusing (Beginning) – Ask students to demonstrate mastery of the previous lesson through bell ringer, do now, or warm up.


• Knowing the Lesson’s Purpose (Beginning) – Ask students to repeat the learning target or essential question in their own words


• Ask students to predict (“prediction effect”) the “why” of the learning target/essential question (Beginning).


• Use a closure activity or ‘exit ticket’ that asks more than comprehension level, regurgitation questions. Ask students to both recall (retrieval practice) and apply what they learned to future or past learning (Ending).


• Purposeful reading, writing, and discussion - Reflection of some kind that addresses learning using evidence from the lesson that connects the learning to something else (Ending).


 


Formative Assessment in the Body of the Lesson (Practicing and Engagement)


 


• Connection activities that ask students to link new learning to older learning• Visualization activities where students draw some concept that has been learned


• Question design - ask kids to write their own questions with different levels of Bloom's involved


• Game play where appropriate can be a great tool as well• Blog writing as a reflective or questioning tool


• Mentor activities that ask the student to create something original using the learning as a model


• Problem solving activities where students apply skills to arrive at a solutionIf students can complete any or all of the above, then we know they have demonstrated proficiency on some level. As we seek to move kids to mastery, we need to be acutely aware of their progress.

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age | Technology In Edu | Scoop.it
What is professional development?  It is pretty much anything that helps one develop professionally. At the heart, professional development is about growth and learning.  In the field of education, it seems like many quickly think of educational opportunities that mimic what they see in their schools. As a result, they turn professional learning and education into schooling.  The problem with that is that schooling is too limiting.  In this age, there are many other exciting and high-impact learning opportunities for teachers that extend beyond traditional notions of schooling.  When we hear the phrase “professional development,” certain practices likely come to mind, things like in-services and conferences. In the digital age, there are countless other opportunities for professional development and restricting one’s thoughts to just a few options limits our insight into what is possible for our students.  With that in mind, here is a brainstorm of 20 options available to educators today. This is far from an exhaustive list, but it is enough to start exploring the possibilities.  Feel free to suggest others in a comment to this post.

Gilles Le Page's curator insight, April 27, 3:20 AM

c'est en anglais, pas vraiment génial, mais certaines pistes sont bonnes ...

Exemples (traduction libre) :

 

La Conférence virtuelle - Construite sur ​​l'idée de la conférence traditionnelle, ce type de conférence nécessite un dispositif et une connexion Internet. Une conf. virtuelle peut inclure des présentateurs et des participants de partout dans le monde, ils sont souvent peu coûteux ou gratuits, et donnent accès aux idées étonnantes d'autres écoles ou éducateurs. 

Avantage supplémentaire : la plupart des sessions sont enregistrées, et peuvent être partagées avec des collègues. 

Un des meilleurs exemples d'une grande conférence virtuelle gratuite pour éducateurs est toujours la Conférence sur l' éducation mondiale , avec des présentateurs et des participants venus du monde entier, tous axés sur l' éducation dans un contexte mondial. 

 

Le Webinar – chaque jour, il y a des milliers de webinars (en ligne et en direct) de 30 à 90 minutes sur ​ des sujets très variés. Certains sont payant, d'autres sont gratuits. Il est facile de les organiser et facile d'y assister. Ils peuvent être un moyen rapide d'explorer un nouveau sujet. Ils peuvent être suivis seul ou avec un groupe de collègues enseignants dans la même pièce, en prenant le temps de débriefer et discuter ensuite.
