iPad Apps Classified by SAMR model

The SAMR model helps teachers and educators understand and better integrate technology into their teaching and learning. This model was created by Dr Robin Puentudura with the explicit aim of helping teachers in designing, developing and integrating digital media to increase students overall academic achievements. The four levels of this model are : Substitution, augmentation, modification and redefinition. Have a look at the image below to learn more about these four levels. The image is taken from Summer Tech Institute. If you want to go deeper into SAMR , I would recommend this PDF from Dr Ruben himself. Let me now share with you a great poster created by Swanson in which he features a myriad of iPad apps according to the four levels of SAMR.

iPads In The Classroom: The Right Questions You Should Ask The pressure is on to make sure the education of U.S. students is on track with their global peers. Unfortunately, according to a 2015 report by Pew Research Center, that’s not the case, particularly in the areas of science and math. It’s no wonder, then, that in the quest for educational advancement, teachers want their students to have access to the newest, theories, processes and technologies to help the students excel. 16 skills students need to learn today to thrive tomorrow The gap between the skills people learn and the skills people need is becoming more obvious, as traditional learning falls short of equipping students with the knowledge they need to thrive, according to the World Economic Forum report New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning Through Technology. Today's job candidates must be able to collaborate, communicate and solve problems – skills developed mainly through social and emotional learning (SEL). Combined with traditional skills, this social and emotional proficiency will equip students to succeed in the evolving digital economy. What skills will be needed most?

24 Apps, Games, and Websites Teachers are Using in STEAM Classrooms In February, we highlighted apps, games, and websites that support science, technology, engineering, art, and math learning (STEAM).

In them, educators of various grade levels and subject areas explain how they use these tools in their teaching. Here's our list of STEAM apps, games, and websites that our educators enjoy using in the classroom. We are also pleased to announce the winner of the $200 Amazon gift card.

Specifically, students enrolled in the college’s med school that are part of the program that is using the mobile devices are getting better results than their university peers, they are developing apps for the technology and they are even working to improve healthcare overall. Named the “ iMedEd Initiative ,” all of the students enrolled in the college’s med school receive tablets with their textbooks and educational materials loaded on them.

Converting audio cassette tapes to CD, MP3 and other digital formats See more Audacity questions and answers at the Audacity Q&A. My parents recently redecorated a room in their house. While cleaning up, they found a cassette tape wedged in a back corner, covered in thick layers of time and memory.

Developing iPad learning workflows for best learning outcomes Rethinking the approach to learning with an iPad was one of the key points that arose from our recent iPad study tour in Queensland. Many of the schools talked about the development of 'Learning Workflows' where work is created in one app, then built on in another App and so on. Using the iPad where many Apps are generally single function, requires a different approach to create useful learning outcomes that moves the integration of the iPad in learning from the Subsitution model to the Redefinition model. A very useful explanation with some practical examples of how to achieve a learning workflow in your classroom can be found in the following video by ELearning Laura based on work done at the Apple Teacher Institute 2012 in Cheltenham.

Educational Apps Checklists Every Teacher Should Have The ' checklist mentality ' is something very common among teachers and educators. We use checklists alot in our work and I personally find them very effective in getting things organized. I use them not only with my students but in my day to day life as well.

How to Save Web Pages as PDF Files on the iPad & iPhone One little feature that iOS really needs is the ability to natively “print to PDF” directly on the iPad and iPhone, a popular trick on the Mac and in the PC world that allows you to digitally print anything and, in this case, save the contents of any web document or web page as a self-contained PDF document, allowing it to be read later, printed, or used for whatever other purpose. Since this great feature isn’t around on the iPhone and iPad at the moment, we can use a nice bookmarklet trick combined with a free third party web service to be able to add a “Save as PDF” option to Safari in iOS, which allows you to ‘print’ or convert any web page to a PDF file that is then accessible to apps like iBooks. Let’s walk through the process of setting this up: 1: Create a “Print to PDF” Bookmarklet in Safari
