SAMR for Educators: Teaching Above the Line

Lately I have spent a good amount of time working with educators on how to know that technology is having a transformative effect in our classrooms.  The SAMR model, developed by Dr. Ruben Puentedura, is a simple, but effective measuring stick to facilitate conversations and critical thinking around the application of technology in our schools.

Additional experiences to explore the SAMR model have been shared with these groups:

Definitely, if you remember one thing about SAMR, I would encourage every educator to engage in thoughtful reflection about the use of technology in their practice and the results for learning.  We should strive to integrate technology in ways that reach "above the line" in the SAMR model in order to expect to see transformative results.
