## It's on the iPad, now what? SAMRTime K-5 Lessons and Resources

George Couros- Principal of Change

Driving Change, When will I have time for that?

"You don't pick up a pencil and say 'hey is there a pencil integration coordinator around to help me?' "

• Innovator's Midset- Challenge the system, ask WHY, make choices and think differently.
• Make better use of your time. EXAMPLE If you write (respond) to each student in their journal, you are becoming more literate not your kids, THINK DIFFERENTLY, responding to their blog, then they get to write back and others get to see and now they are excited!
• Innovation is a HUMAN Endeavor not technology
• Decision Makers NEED to be where the actions is
• The further removed we are from the classroom, the more we lose touch with the impact of our decisions.
• Learning First, Technology Second
• Create meaningful experiences for staff. The JOB of a teacher/administrator IS TO UNLEASH peoples power, MAKE students/teachers self driven
• Tools come and go, but the the drive to learn stays the same!
• Teachers forget that learning is EXHAUSTING
• Stay FOCUSED Literate->Adaptive->Transform (SAMR) (Use tools so much it becomes natural and then go deeper)
• Students should be Interactive Producers not Isolated consumers
• When kids do work for a teacher they want it to be "good enough". When they do work for the world they want it be great!
• Identity Day- Explore what you love & share with the world, teachers too, kids love to learn about you
