An iPad can be a teacher’s very handy assistant! Last year I published an infographic titled "iPad as the Teacher’s Pet” and I have updated it to version 2.0. It’s all about what can be done by Pad-using educators, whether or not their students have iPads. It is divided into seven sections:
"Daily 5 takes the students from where they are in relation to their ability to be independent, and teaches them to become intrinsically motivated as they build stamina." Gail Boushey Sharing best practices is one of the most important components...
The SAMR (Substitution Augmentation Modification Redefinition) model is a framework used to evaluate the technology being employed (or that you’d like to employ) in your classroom.
Basically, it offers a way for you to look at how technology integration might affect teaching and learning. Accordingly, many teachers and administrators who are in the process of choosing between classroom technology …
by Kathy Schrock"I feel teachers need to both create tasks that target the higher-order cognitive skills (Bloom's) as well as design tasks that have a significant impact on student outcomes (SAMR). A visual to illustrate that follows."Educators will argue they have seen redefinition tasks that only target the remembering level or have a creative assessment that is only at the augmentation level. Of course that is true, but I believe we should be planning for technology tasks, activities, and assessments that include both the higher levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy and the transformation area of SAMR model."Jim Lerman's insight:SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition) is gaining a great deal of attention currently as a way to conceptualize technology integration into teaching and learning. Schrock, one of the web's early and greatest collectors and curators, has gathered a cornucopia of excellent resources.I personally find SAMR to bear considerable resemblance to the original 5 levels of tech integration posited by the Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow (ACOT) project back in the 1980's: Entry, Adoption, Adaptation, Appropriation, Invention. In fact, if one eliminates the first stage (Entry), the two frameworks seem almost identical. Does anyone have anything they'd like to say about this?

Have you ever thought of teaching your students how to create an ePortfolio ? Well if you have not then it is about time to take the idea seriously. There are actually several reasons why you should encourage students to create their own ePortfolios but before we delve into them let me just briefly define what an ePortfolio is.
ePortfolio is an electronic journal where one collects evidence of their learning. It is the equivalent of the traditional pen and paper journals where we used to track our learning journey before technology takes over. ePortfolios can either be discipline specific or genrally open to the entire lifelong learning experience. We in education are interested in the first type.
The good thing about ePortfolios is that they help students reflect about their own learning.This reflection is a necessary mental process for developing critical thinking. Students no longer are just passive learners but rather actively participate in the improvement of their learning.
