Education, Technology

Amen, brother

“Technology is a tool, which when used correctly, can assist a teacher in transforming instruction. However, technology will not transform instruction without a teacher creating engaging, interesting activities for students.”

-Mark Samberg in his recent piece “Why I’m Done With SAMR”

Speaking of guys (sorta) returning to blogging.  I am 90% in agreement with Mark here.  It’s not SAMR that is the problem, but rather the way that BIG ED steals good ideas and turns them into bad ones using testing.

BTW, I’m linking to my Instapaper version of the post because I keep getting a malicious code warning when trying to visit it on marksamberg.com.
