Another Snow Day......SAMR vs. TPACK

   Well, here we sit with another blustery, cold, windy day outside!!  School's off and the Harlem Shake Video is made with the boys;)!!!  Glad that's over with - might be making a Macbeth one later in the week:)!!!
   Ok - the visit to Watertown-Mayer was GREAT!!  Not only did I #1 - see great ideas and ways to use the iPad with lower elementary, #2 - was able to talk with and chat with two administrators about how they have done things and will try to do some things - but #3 - KNOW WE MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE:)!!!  Like us, they are in the "substitution" phase of the iPad - you know where you use it instead of another method you might have done in the past.  I have talked about BOTH the SAMR Model and the TPACK model - BOTH are GREAT ways to think about iPad integration - and both REALLY reflect the importance of that TRUE INTEGRATION!!!

Here are two visuals for you - one the SAMR Model and the other TPACK Model:

  I LOVE them both - and feel that they are both great examples of where one should be with the iPads and education!!!  I also know (well think and hope), that after this year, we will continue to move up the continuum and start jumping into Augmentation and the Transformation areas - all I know is that we are 500% MORE comfortable with the iPads and their use than we were a year ago at this time - YAHOO FOR GROWTH, PATIENCE, and CONTINUOUS LEARNING:)!!!

Have a great rest of the day - no GREAT GREAT free apps today - will check tomorrow and let you know,
Mrs. I:)
