SAMR and Bloom's Taxonomy: Assembling the Puzzle | Common Sense Education

Posted: June 21, 2017, 10:14 pm

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

Augmentation/Apply: Using a simple yet powerful tool for visualization like GeoGebra, students explore the concepts covered in the resources described in 1., and solve related standard problems. The scope and number of the problems is not governed by what is available in the “back of the book,” but rather driven by the evolution of student understanding, as measured by suitable formative assessment processes.

Substitution/Remember: Students use ebooks and other Open Education Resources to acquire basic knowledge about statistical tools and procedures.

2. Substitution/Understand: At the same time, they begin a process of gathering information online describing applications of these statistical tools to an area of interest to them, using simple bookmark aggregation services (e.g., Diigo, Delicious) to collect and tag these resources, relating them to the knowledge gained in 1.

Posted: June 11, 2017, 8:31 am


  • EduTech in Sydney has been a remarkable experience. A grand celebration of education and an energising gathering of educators ready to share stories and make connections. Despite the rainy weather some 8000 educators came together in the inspiring new International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour and left two days later with hers full of new ideas and wonderings of what might be the future of education. With many ideas still bubbling away here is a brief list of the key take-aways. - Nigel Coutts

A Review of Netvibes, Personalized Start Pages

Posted: June 8, 2017, 7:53 pm


  • Who uses this and do you like it? - hgeiges
  • I used to use it, but being cloud-based it doesn't let me use it with my personal workflow offline (which does still happen). I also find it better to use separate tools for separate contexts of work because those tools will better within each context than netvibes, which is a jack of all trades and master of none. - Fil Salustri
