Using SAMR & Mobile Devices to Reshape Learning Activities #NOMOREWORKSHEETS
The SAMR Model can help change the way learning activities are shaped in your district. SAMR, which stands for substitute, augment, modify, and redefine, opens the conversation with schools and teachers about higher level learning activities specifically with technology.
The new curriculum offers a chance to change how we do things, but not if a new worksheet is developed for a new curriculum. Transform the traditional worksheet concept into a redefinition of what can be accomplished with a little bit of ‘app smashing’ using a mobile device.
Examples of how thinking has been changed in our district and recommended hands on activities will be shared using an iPad. As a portion of the workshop will be hands on and participants are encouraged to bring an iPad (or other mobile device) to the session.
