Linoit - We used Linoit.com to post takeaways about previous sessions.
For student use: anonymous assessment. Exit slips - Different colors could mean different things. Green - learned, yellow - something not sure of, red - did not understand, etc
Connected learning is agnostic in the delivery and resources used. Connect learning to real-world engagement. This is not new, but we now have tools that make it much more accessible. Widening gap between "haves" and "have-nots." The inequity is expanding even though the technology itself is much more prolific because students do not have access to the technologies and opportunities.

SAMR model for technology integration. Info: http://www.schrockguide.net/samr.html
S - Substitution, tech just replaces something you are already using
A - Augmentation, tech enhances something the students were doing, but not replace the task
M - Modification, tech allows major task redesign around the heart of the initial task (writing a collaborative essay instead of a single-author essay, edit cycles, etc)
R - Redefinition, tech allows for creation of new tasks made possible by the new technology. Essay now changes into video or digital storytelling and then students become mentors to other students.
We viewed several different videos and then talked in groups about where on the SAMR scale the sample lessons fell.
