G'day Olga and greetings from Downunder on the bottom in the middle. That's how I describe Adelaide to colleagues in the USA and Europe :-) Wow Russian that's awesome, may I see it please. Let me know if I can help further. Maybe we can meet on SKYPE. Also I don't think your translation work will be wasted howevert there is a modified Version 3.0 out which is even better. Please visit http://tinyurl.com/padwheelposter3 This is a PDF designed to be an A3 poster as well. All the apps are also linked and it uses QRcodes for scanning by phones etc. You may also find this blog post helpful - please have a look at the Edudemic post http://ow.ly/lKJcK Do contact me if you have any questions. Could I be bold and suggest you translate the entire poster all the content is helpful I believe. I can provide you with a Keynote file (for MAC) which will make it easier. Regards Allan
Olga Evstifeeva's comment, June 7, 2013 7:50 AM
Good evening, Allan, thanks for your respond!
Olga Evstifeeva's comment, June 7, 2013 7:50 AM
I've posted the translation in my blog, here is the link to the post http://pedagogland.ru/ispolzovanie-it-v-sochetanii-s-taksonomiej-bluma.html
The picture is linked with your pdf file at http://www.unity.net.au/padwheel/padwheelposter.pdf, and there is another link in the text to your article in your blog http://www.unity.net.au/allansportfolio/edublog/?p=324

I laid out the translation of the contents of the wheel into the spreadsheet with some short comments (primarily concerning the SAMR model and levels of IT use in school education - column 1) and added a few apps and online services with a few links to some brief guides (the last column, for the teachers who are probably not familiar with some of them yet :) as iPads are not widely used at our schools yet (maybe in the nearest future), so apps for desktops or laptops are more actual for us by far.

That's great that you gave me the link for the P_Wheel 3.0, thank you! Right, motivation along with graduate features should be in the core of the wheel. I'd be happy to translate the entire poster, thanks for the suggestion, the problem is that I don't use Mac. What can we do here? my email: olga@dohnsco.com
Best regards

80 iPad Apps for Early Elementary - Apps for Education | ESUTechnology Integration

80 iPad Apps for Early Elementary - Apps for Education | ESUTechnology Integration | Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

"

For my daughter's 7th birthday my wife and I decided to buy her an iPad mini.  We came to this decision after contemplating the alternatives.  
The iPad mini made the most sense because:

1 - iOS apps are significantly better (my opinion) than droid apps in this moment.  I'm talking about both diversity in educational apps available and general individual app quality.2 - The iPad mini can run all iPad and iPhone apps.3 - The iPad mini's size is much kid friendlier than the bigger iPad.4 - The iPad mini is actually fairly reasonably priced - ours was $300 at Walmart.


Now that I have it in my office, the next question is what apps do I put on it?  As a tech integration guy, I spend a significant amount of time reading and writing app reviews.  What follows is a short description / rationale for each of my choices.  All of these are apps that I had on my iPad that I recommend to my teachers - they are FREE unless otherwise noted."

Technology Integration Matrix to Help Enhance Student Learning

Technology Integration Matrix to Help Enhance Student Learning | Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

"The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells..."

Graphite has just been launched by Common Sense Media. If you have not used resources from Common Sense Media it is worth your time to check the site out. They are an ad free site with a focus on education. This new website will help you find digital learning products that have been rated by "professional educators – early childhood development experts, doctorates in education, and teachers with hands-on classroom chops." 

What will you find at this site? Information about websites, games and apps, with ratings "based on our detailed rubric that scores each product on 15 dimensions. Plus, we tag each product for subjects, skills, and grade band and map them to Common Core and other state standards."

You can become a member for free and have access not only to Graphite, but also to many other great resources!
