The Good Stuff

Not to say that the stuff on my ‘Home’ page isn’t good, but I figured that here might be a good place to easily access brilliant resources that I find from time to time.

Today’s #iPadexplore being one such example. John Burns, Apple Education Development Executive, presented this morning on some absolutely BRILLIANT apps now available. Links below. They’re categorised using the ‘SAMR model’ (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redesign).

SAMR – http://www.hippasus.com/rrpweblog/archives/000025.html

Basically; substitution is where you use the tool to substitute what you would normally do with the ‘old’ tool’; augmentation is where you ‘add’ to the task at hand; ‘modification’ is where the task is partially modified through the use of elements in the tool that allow such modification, and redesign is where the task becomes something not even conceivable before with the old tool.
