This infographic illustrates how SAMR may be used as a framework as we move from Education 1.0 to Education 2.0 to Education 3.0. The actual post also includes a wide variety of links to additional resources.

Have you considered using the SAMR model as you develop new curriculum or revise curriculum. As you move up SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition) Gerstein would say that Substitution and Augmentation are Education 1.0, Modification is Education 2.0 and Redefinition is Education 3.0.

This is a great site that with links to eBooks.  I especially like how the author provides information about each site, how he uses it, and what the eBooks can do.  This is very user friendly for teachers to explore and learn more about eBooks available on the web.

Special Education 101 (Infographic)

Special Education 101 (Infographic) | teachingICT | Scoop.it

An overview of Special Education that helps to define the term special education, looks at types of special needs, the percentage of students who receive special education services, and much more. In this infographic special education is defined as "specially designed instruction to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability."

Today one of the buzzwords in education is personalized learning. As our classrooms move towards this goal it is important to recognize how technology may impact both our special education and our regular education students.

Steven Blomdale's curator insight, June 6, 2013 12:12 AM

I scooped this info graph to demonstrate to teachers to prominences of the various types impairments in the 21st century. I beleive this is an important issue as teachers need to know as classrooms today are having students with some type of disability or impairemnt. Teachers need accomodate and differentiate the types of ICT skills and devices used within the classroom. The aim of technolgies within the classroom is to allow students to engage confidently with technologies and make informed, ethical and sustainable decisions about technologies for preferred futures including personal health andwellbeing, recreation, everyday life, the world of work and enterprise, and the environment (ACARA, 2013).
