We read, learned, and shared a lot last week. Including this great quote from Lincoln. About the internet. Who knew? We are swimming in new acronyms, because we love acronyms in education. SAMR and OER. Those are occupying our time a lot lately. We just learned that Amazon intends to host an OER platform. That might be something. And we ran a workshop with all of our building administrators that started with a very simple slide that said SAMR. We gave them 15 minutes to become SAMR experts, using any tools they’d like. Then they shared resources and learning. A 2-3 minute presentation was the concluding activity. And we had some great ones! The blatant contrast in energy and learning, doing an activity like this, compared to us simply reading from a powerpoint was obvious.
