The Road to Redefinition: Overcoming the impossible by teaching with iPads and Android mobile devices

The SAMR model describes the progression educators make with technology from simply “substituting” analog tasks with digital tasks to “redefinition” which entails changing teaching and learning to the degree results were inconceivable before the invention of the technology. Investigate the progression and explore practical examples of how real teachers are accomplishing this with iPads and other Android devices.

Below are my presentation slides. I will be presenting this on Wednesday July 24 at Learning in Disguise in East Grand Rapids, MI and then again on August 22 at the St. Clair RESA 21st Century Symposium in Marysville, MI.

One thought on “The Road to Redefinition: Teaching with iPads and Android mobile devices

  1. We piloted iPads at our school and one of my biggest a-ha moments was realizing that when applying the SAMR model to tablets, the outcomes/products/objectives should be different than what I can do on my laptop. Which is why I shouldn’t try to make a iPad do what a laptop can do. And when you hit the redefinition level of SAMR with tablets, what is happening should be created with the capabilities and strengths of the tablet in mind. Yes, you can’t type quickly on a tablet, but the tablet has given me the opportunity to wholly redefine a task. And that can be exciting. Good luck with your presentation!
