In terms of the SAMR model (see post 6), here is the way we moved through all four levels of technology integration in just the two weeks we have been using iPads in the classroom.
|TASK||Definition||Our Classroom Examples|
|Substitution||Technology acts as a direct tool substitute with no functional improvement||Math Facts with Apps, Notetaking in Doceri|
Bell ringer in Socrative or Google Forms
|Augmentation||Technology acts as a direct tool substitute with functional improvement||E-mail Notes|
Communicating with students via e-mail.
|Modification||Technology allows for significant task redesign||Using Google Forms + Flubaroo to grade and e-mail students results of the bell ringer.|
Watch videos and take notes over the video.
|Redefinition||Tech allows for the creation of new tasks, previously inconceivable||Create a screencast to explain your homework .|
Teach your teacher about equivalent fractions.
E-mail your homework videos to your teacher.
