In our previous issue we shared how the key to the 21st Century classroom isn’t tech but transformative teaching.
We’ve seen technology in the hands of skilled and knowledgeable teachers who have utilized the SAMR model to enhance traditional teaching and learning.
Traditional note taking with Microsoft Word or Google Docs.
Formative assessment by having students creating and maintaining a learning journal website.
Maths and Biology lessons by collecting data about daily nutrient intake using Google Forms and visualising it using BSD Online to enable analysis, understanding and a discussion about balanced diets.
Design Technology lessons by using Microbit to create hardware solutions for problems like low light on hiking trails or warmth and protection for pets during foggy winters.
“As educators and curators of educational technology we know that technology is a tool that complements instruction.”
