1:1 and the SAMR model

Posted: June 11, 2013 in 1:1, Learning..., technology

Our district has done a beautiful job of supporting us with plenty of opportunities for growth and preparation within the 1:1 model for the summer, and I look forward to taking the opportunity to learn, grow and prepare for next year.

The first online course for us is one about the SAMR model of technological integration.
Here is a video describing SAMR, if you are unacquainted:

And then a thoughtful blog post:
SAMR and the integration of technology

Finally, a cool matrix to look at that compares learning environments (constructed, active, goal-directed, etc.) with the SAMR integration types. (This is REALLY cool! Check it out. It even has videos that describe the various levels of integration in relation to the classroom/learning type!)

Technology Integration Matrix

Our task is to take a current lesson and kick it up a notch or two, more meaningfully creating technological integration. I’m on it!
