A blog I am following with interest is Mrs. Pepe Dot Com, an Apple Distinguished Educator (these individuals have some wonderful ideas to share with others who are genuinely interested in promoting the effective use of ICT within today’s classroom).
In a recent post on her blog 21st Century Digital World, the enthusiasm and passion for sharing ICT ideas that work are most evident. In turn, this enthuses the reader to click that link and investigate further. As part of a current project, APP-smash: the Ben Bloom fist in the SAMR glove mentions many of the aspects we have been introduced to as part of EDC 3100 – how best to use and implement ICT in today’s classrooms. The trendy way in which these components have been drawn together is visually stimulating – all parts fitting together, in some shape or form.
Mention was made of Alan Carrington’s Padagogy Wheel (tick), Kathy Schrock’s Bloomin Apps/Interlocking Cogs (tick), Dr Ruben Puentedura’s SAMR Model (tick), Benjamin Bloom’s Taxonomy (tick) and Gregory Kuloviec’s App-Smashing (newly ticked!) … I was intrigued and wanted to delve a little deeper – App-Smashing – making apple juice or something? Have a look for yourself at this Vimeo where all becomes clear.
