I would love to see examples of the SAMR model applied to second language learning. Do any appear in your previous presentations.l

This has been rattling in my head for the last coulpe of days. Like you, I see so many workshops being offered on get this app or apps for ____ . There's no starting discussion about pedagogy, inquiry, or student choice. My concern is that iPads become a quick fix because educators don't feel the need to learn about the process of building a website (i.e. wiki,tumbler) because they can just use an app that looks cool, looks like the students are engaged and looks like they are using technology.Like a textbook- it's been built already and hey, it works.At the base, foundation, of integrating technology is a pedagogy that the technology is a tool, not the focus, and that students have choices about which technology tool they are using to best answer the inquiry. With this, then its important that classroom teachers are following suit with iPad integration. If multiplication is being learned then multiple apps are introduced and the student chooses what is best for their learning personality.When students are creating a project they are still offered choice about their research and how they build their assignment. Perhaps instead of app for that it should be there could be an app as well as other tools .Thanks for the brain share. My brain feels much better now. Well put together post with research and given background.
