The Big Picture Of Education Technology: The Padagogy Wheel - 7 views

  •  
    "Teaching is a matter of design.

    That's not new, but in an era of change and possibility, it's more apparent now than ever.

    The SAMR model (which acts as a kind of continuum to reflect the possibilities of technology in learning) is a helpful tool to make sense of this idea, a visual reminder that ideally technology moves beyond Substitution phase (the "S") towards a Redefinition (the "R") of what was previously impossible without it.

    This, among other shifts, will help fully realize the potential of learning technology. When you take a Bloom's wheel, and smash it together with 60+ educational apps that allows learners to brainstorm, collaborate, research, create, curate, and create new knowledge-well, you have the image below, courtesy of Allan Carrington of Designing Outcomes."

Free Technology for Teachers: Ten Great Tools for Telling Stories With Pictures - A PDF... - 3 views

  •  
    "Composing a story from scratch comes naturally to some people. For the rest of us creating a story from scratch can be a struggle. Over the years I've found that using pictures helps a lot of students get started on crafting stories. In some cases I've had students create collages to represent elements of a story. In other cases I've had them choose five pictures and write two hundred words about each. Being asked to write two hundred words about five pictures feels a lot less daunting than being asked to write one thousand words in one shot.

    The PDF embedded below (click here if you can't see the embedded document) outlines how to use ten of my favorite free tools to create image-based stories. "
