I have been looking at the SAMR model to help me understand my own process of incorporating technology and learning technology. I began by looking at different graphics and sites on the topic. I have written about it here. I began to create my own SAMR model graphic (see above).
I did this by starting with notability (substituting paper and pencil for the app) to create each graphic. I then used google docs to move those graphics made on the iPad to my computer where I was able to add them to a word document from adobe pdf (augmenting by moving the information through different platforms and using spellcheck). I then created the final graphic and saved it as a pdf, copied it again to create a png (modifying to create something completely different from the original intent). Finally, I shared it through twitter (and now wordpress) to allow comments, favorites, and retweets (giving it a life of its own, redefining what the original was).
Now, in the research of the SAMR model I came across a few posts about using the SAMR model to help move education forward. Looking at education under the same lens, one could look at the traditional education model as education 1.0, where teachers with subject knowledge give that information to the students (one way). Teachers as facilitating learning, navigating content with students in place of for students, using formative assessment, can be thought of as education 2.0 (two way). Education 3.0 would be a greater sharing of the knowledge, a discovery model where the knowledge is uncovered by learners, changing the knowledge as they go. It is an inquiry model where the knowledge and learning is shared and changed globally.
Again, more on this later, as my thoughts get clearer (if that ever happens……)
