SAMR : A model for the integration of technology

SAMR : A model for the integration of technology
Substitution => Augmentation => Modification => Redefinition
While there has been a bit of question as to the effectiveness of SAMR, a shift to move beyond SAMR, and a few proposed changes to the structure of the model floating around online, I have to say that hearing Dr. Ruben Puentedura (you may know him as the father of SAMR) speak at iPad Summit still felt like a rare app-ortunity and a truly inspiring treat.
As I am still collecting my thoughts and ideas from the event, I wanted to share some really great resources from the Dr. SAMR.

School Technology Road Map
This road map for building your technology platform was derived from ideas from commercial technical writing, (covered in, “Manual Writing,” at Vancouver Island University) in which all components in a computer system are documented. Some of the bubbles below can be mere links to other resources, but the entire map should be understood as you run your school technology center.

ICT strategic planning guide for Australian schools
Information and communications technology (ICT) provides schools with major opportunities for improving learning, teaching and administration. To benefit from these opportunities, a school must apply ICT resources in a way that supports its educational goals. ICT strategic planning, also known as e‐learning planning, is a useful process for helping a school to make well‐informed decisions about ICT

The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students.
The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments.
Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells as illustrated ....

TPCK - Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge

TPCK - Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) attempts to capture some of the essential qualities of knowledge required by teachers for technology integration in their teaching, while addressing the complex, multifaceted and situated nature of teacher knowledge.
At the heart of the TPACK framework, is the complex interplay of three primary forms of knowledge: Content (CK), Pedagogy (PK), and Technology (TK). See Figure above. As must be clear, the TPACK framework builds on Shulman's idea of Pedagogical Content Knowledge.

Guide to Measuring Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Education
In a move to put in place internationally standardized methodologies and indicators to monitor the growing integration of information and communication technologies into education across countries, the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) has released the Guide to Measuring Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Education.
In addition to the UIS core set of indicators, this guide presents an expanded list to address a wide range of policy concerns in relation to the new paradigm of ICT-enhanced education service delivery. It will help to ensure consistent use and interpretation of ICT in education statistics among policymakers, statisticians, researchers, experts and statistical institutions across the world.

LoTi is a term referring to Dr. Moersch's Level of Technology Implementation Framework designed to accurately measure authentic classroom technology use.
The LoTi Framework focuses on the use of technology as a tool within the context of student based instruction with a constant emphasis on higher order thinking.
While technology is an important tool in engaging today's students and preparing them for the future, the LoTi Project recognizes that technology is not the best tool for every lesson.
Since 1998, LoTi has grown to become an internationally recognized symbol and catalyst for systemic reform in classroom uses of technology and complex thinking skills.

"Every Child Matters" : What it means for the ICT teacher
Changes in the United Kingdom to the way education and social services work together for the benefit of children have been very profound, but so far mainly at a high level. That is to say, changes have been made and are being made at Local Authority level, but many schools have not been affected in terms of how they manage teaching and learning. This paper is intended to look at what Every Child Matters means to the teacher of information and communication technology (ICT) and to ICT in the classroom.

ICT benchmarking matrix & School ICT Dev.Plans examples
http://www.content.networcs.net/ngfl/ngflmatrix_pages.htm
Worcestershire LEA has developed an ICT benchmarking matrix (2001) which schools can use to locate their use of ICT in a number of key areas: strategic management; ICT within the curriculum; support for school leadership and management. There are four stages: initial, developmental, established and advanced.
The aim is for schools to use the matrix as a mechanism to prepare detailed action plans for ICT as part of school self review.
