ICT Cluster Meeting Mangere East Thursday 10 September 2015
Anthony gave us an overview of Mangere East’s ICT journey, and how this is constantly evolving
This led to a discussion on various cloud based options, and experiences from other teachers present.
Steve Voisey from TTS:
Gave a presentation of the SAMR model and how technology should enhance it, by adding more capability to do things differently and creatively, and to collaboratively engage in higher thinking skills:
Substitution - Device acts as a direct substitute with no functional change
Augmentation - Device acts as a direct tool substitute with functional improvement
Modification - technology allows for significant redesign
Redefinition - Technology allows for creation of new tasks previously inconceivable
As we go forward in SAMR there is more creation and more collaboration.
We ended with mixed discussion soon after 5pm.
Thanks to Anthony and Mangere East school for hosting and providing a tasty afternoon tea.
Our next meeting will be in Week 3 of Term 4 at Papatoetoe Intermediate. This is a new school to our group as they have expressed in the things we are doing, and are keen to join our meetings. More details later.
