Three Big Shifts or Shift Happens

I had to laugh when I got to Scott McCleod’s Dangerously Irrelevant blog site and saw his “Shift Happens” page. I recently got to spend the day with Scott at a pre-conference at ASB’s Unplugged Technology Conference in Mumbai, India. He was a dynamic presenter and had us moving and talking during the full day session.

I have tried to implement SAMR and T-PAC before with some success but his Trudacot tool (name not withstanding) really works to transform lessons. His three big shifts are moving from teacher-directed to student-directed; analog to digital; and low-level thinking to high-level thinking.  Here is the link to one of his twitcasts.  You might also want to follow his blog.
