  • SAMR MODEL  The SAMR model suggests that technology can be used in learning activities in the following ways:  Substitution: technology acts as a tool substitute, with no functional change  Augmentation: technology acts as a direct tool substitute, with functional improvement  Modifications: technology allows for significant task redesign  Redefinition: technology allows for the creation of new tasks previously inconceivable. Ruben Puentedura, 2010

  • FLIPPED CLASSROOMS: PROS  Teachers address diverse learning styles Out of the classroom Content explored autonomously  Teachers benefit from sharing content / learning objects with peers, admin, parents, and students.  Students access contents as many times as they need.  Students collaborate with each other’s learning  Students’ families can soon be involved in the process ". . . the focus of flipped teaching is different from other examples in that the technology itself is simply a tool for flexible communication that allows educators to differentiate instruction to meet individual student needs and spend more time in the classroom focused on collaboration and higher-order thinking." Jac de Haan, author of the blog Technology with Intention In the classroom Content practiced collaborativel Click image to enlarge
