What is the message behind this movie?
We need new strategies and change for a new generation of learners.
We need to make learning relevant.
We need to think about how we use technology effectively in our schools
How to use the SAMR model to ensure best educational practice
Often the stage of SAMR that you are using depends on how you incorporate the application to your classroom.
It is important to note the apps we show you today could fit into different stages of the model.
The placement of the apps could vary depending on the activity and the desired goals and outcomes for a particular project.
Common Mistakes Schools Make When Using Tablets
Focus on content apps
Lack of teacher preparation in management of tablets. You need an ideal workflow
(we look at this in our next session.)
Treating the tablet like a computer and expecting it to serve as a laptop
Treating the tablet like a multi-user device
Having an unreliable wifi network
Using it as a 'play' tool
Not using as 1-1?
Rules for using iPads in the Classroom and as a whole school
Examples of how to use Applications in the SAMR model
10 million iPads used in schools worldwide!
Why is it important to use mobile devices in your classroom?
-They are cost effective
-They don't require an email address
-Most are open-ended
-They can be used across year levels
-The best idea is to focus on a few apps and know them well. Teach your students how to navigate these and use them repeatedly in different ways.
-Many apps have similar outcomes, use the rubric to decide which ones suit you and your students.

The camera is the new pen. Laptops can not be used as cameras and so will find their usefulness in general education decreases over the next decade.

Before you use an app ask yourself?
1. Does the app allow for creativity, including augmentation?
2. Does the app allow for collaboration?
3. Does the app allow for sharing potential to build authentic and global audiences including options to email and/or post to the web?
4. Although not essential, a bonus in the Kimberley region, does the app allow for in built audio capabilities to build vocabulary and oral language?
