Target Instructional Needs - Guest Blog Post

Who better to speak to instruction-focused technology integration than the eLearning Contributor who developed the training on this methodology himself?

 

Guest Blog Post by Ron Farrow, eLearning Contributor

 

I think as educators we are always looking out for what will have the most impact on student learning. We want to reach every student, all the time.  When it comes to technology, most teachers are not hesitant to include technology in their instruction, they just simply do not have the time for the major learning curve that often comes with the various programs or devices.  The issue with many technology integration programs is 3-fold:

  •     Overwhelming approach with a technology focus
  •     No time for learning curve
  •     Blanket training

In the Integration series for Atomic Learning, I discuss an instruction-focused approach to technology integration. By focusing on instruction and student learning, you eliminate the fear and anxiety that comes from new programs and new devices. You also begin to eliminate the learning curve for technology. The focus is on instruction, so the technology is targeted towards a specific goal.

Atomic Learning recently added an online course on the SAMR model to its library.

"The new Atomic Learning training course on SAMR gives examples in English, Math, Social Studies, Science, World Language, Music, Art, Phy Ed, and even Assessment,” said the training’s developer and educator Stacci Barganz. “Teachers are encouraged to watch the examples both in their own subject area(s) and in other areas, because it may spark an idea that could be useful in their own classroom situation.”

The SAMR model was developed by Dr. Ruben Puentedura, and it stands for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition.

Using SAMR in your Subject Area: Need Some Ideas? - Guest Blog Post

Who better to speak to integrating the SAMR model than the eLearning Contributor who developed the training on this methodology herself?

Guest Blog Post by Stacci Barganz, eLearning Contributor

As a former technology coach, one of the biggest complaints teachers always had was that they received training on different technologies that seemed very useful, but they never had any ideas on how to put those technologies into practice in their own classrooms. As a result of these conversations, I became more cognizant that I needed to find a way to communicate that with teachers, and I ran across the SAMR model.

The SAMR model was developed by Dr. Ruben Puentedura, and it stands for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition.
