iBeacons mapped to SAMR model

949 views

Published on

iBeacons are small bluetooth emitters that mobile apps can use to trigger experiences based on context and location.

6 months in the making, this infographic aims to map the emerging uses of iBeacons in Education against the levels of the SAMR model developed by Dr Rubin Puentedura. Why? When a new technology emerges, its early uses in education will generally follow a path that begins at a substitution level of using the new tech almost exclusively just to replace something we could already do. In the case of iBeacons, this can mean pushing links to lesson resources out to class iPads rather than emailing them.

As our experience grows however, the challenge in regards to getting the most out of the time, money and energy spent on on deploying the new technology is to learn how the capabilities it brings allows us to augment, modify and then redefine the original learning task in ways that would never have been possible before.

I hope you find this chart useful - it is a just a version one, but has resulted from a large range of conversations I've had with leading educators and iBeacon early-adopters this year. Enjoy, share, and let's know ideas for a future version 2 :)

iBeacons mapped to SAMR model

  1. 1. L E A R N I N G START HERE: Workshops & Conferences Tech allows for the creation of new learning tasks, previously inconceivable 4. REDEFINITION • Students use a service like Beacondo to create their own beacon integrations • Student work is published in a non-traditional way that utilises physical location as a trigger • Students learn enough to begin collaborating via connections to other internet of things (IoT) devices such as smart watches and automated IFTTT (If This Then That) channels • Your idea here _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _?? 3. MODIFICATION Tech allows for significant pedagogical & learning task redesign some pedagogical improvement 2. AUGMENTATION • Integrate with an LMS to curate access to lesson content • BLE speeds up process of pairing devices for sharing (ie. Airdrop) • Alert users to the presence of nearby collaboration zones that they can join and contribute to 1. SUBSTITUTION Tech acts as a direct tool substitute, with no functional change to pedagogy >.

FLOW-ON EFFECTS? • Popup notifications provide links to a map of campus/ school • Instructions and content (ie. word lists, links) can be pushed to devices as dictated by when students arrive/ leave a physical space • Beacons can substitute for other accessibility notifications • What are iBeacons? “They add the dimensions of space, context and time to learning” • How might learning triggers be useful? • What problems do they solve?
