Framework for Professional Development: SAMR Template & Infographic

Framework for Professional Development: SAMR Template & Infographic | Profound Thinking | Scoop.it

"My colleague, Silvana Meneghini, and I have been working on developing a Professional Development framework for embedding technology use and modern learning litercies based on Ruben Puentedura's SAMR model.

The template consists of 4 Focus Areas. Each stage of the SAMR model consists of 4 focus areas in the template, that support vision, planning, and evaluation in activity and task design as well as a professional development framework."

If you are considering using the SAMR model to design lesson plans/units you should consider checking out this post. There is a very detailed template that helps you walk through the steps and consider how to best design your lesson/unit. The template is detailed and you may download it as a pdf. An example is included.

Many are turning to the SAMR model as a guide to integrate technology into their curriculum. If this model is new to you search this Scoop.it or type SAMR in your favorite search engine and you will find a wide variety of resources.

Discovering How to Learn Smarter~ Carol Dweck's Brainology

Discovering How to Learn Smarter~ Carol Dweck's Brainology | Profound Thinking | Scoop.it
This article is about how teachers in many schools in the D.C. area are foregoing empty praise of the “Good job!” variety, in favor of giving students solid information that will do them some real good. That information concerns how their brains work and how their intelligence and skills develop, and it’s knowledge that should be made available to every child in the country. Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck conducted the groundbreaking research showing that praise intended to raise young people’s self-esteem can seriously backfire.

"There is a special type of frustration experienced by parents who can't understand their child's elementary school math homework."

Mel Riddile's curator insight, June 6, 2014 12:01 PM

School leaders need to let parent know that, without special training, they will not be able to help their children with math homework!


Here is why! "A key issue is that the new standards are asking children to understand and be able to explain the structural underpinnings of mathematics reasoning. That's different from decades past, when it was enough to memorize formulas and patterns to achieve the right answer."


The chart above illustrates the dilemma. We were taught to work math problems. Math tests asked "do you know it"--how to work the math problem. Because the Common Core Standards are designed to prepare students to succeed in post-secondary education and training, students need to actually demonstrate that they know how to use the math concepts. We were not asked to do that.


In the second decade of the 21st Century, it is not enough for us to know how to work math problems. We must apply math concepts to real world situations. "Kevin McLeod, who has taught graduate and undergraduate math at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukeesince 1987, suggested the need for stronger math instruction is because many university students arrive needing remedial or high school math courses."


That means we have to 1) know how to work the problems, 2) understand the math concepts we used, 3) apply the math concepts to a unique real-world situation, and 4) explain our reasoning in writing.


Parents may know step 1, but they will need training in order to help their children with steps 2 through 4.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 2, 2014 12:46 PM

Educational managers and reformers are quite caught up in assigning a number to the learning children undertake. It makes more sense to make the learning enjoyable. Teaching is an invitational event which brings children into safe spaces where learning can happen.
