Padlet as a Literacy tool for Parallel Discussions.

I’ve long been interested in seeing the use of technology in the classroom as an almost invisible tool, a stage for which the children and the learning process are the stars.  I often watch technologies trickle away after the novelty has faded, making me wonder how technology is valued.

I endeavour to regard learning tech as merely the metaphorical stage, rather than the actor, in this show of learning.

Take, for example, the humble scanning app FineScanner (or similar).  In the middle of a lesson, a piece of student work can be scanned and projected instantly onto the screen or sent to student devices for illustrative purposes.  This simple act is an example of a versatile portion of the stage that permeates lessons where needed.  I would place it in the category of Augmentation (as part of Puentedura’s SAMR Model), mentioned in a previous blog post, that enhances learning without necessarily transforming the pedagogical landscape.
