SAMR-ific: An Apptastic Journey Through The SAMR Model

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

All classrooms and grade levels will benefit from this fun and fast paced SAMR-ific session! The Substitution Augmentation Modification Redefinition (SAMR) Model is a framework for technology use in the classroom that strongly impacts teaching and learning. Teachers will learn new and innovative ways to climb the SAMR model from the Substitution to Redefinition levels using project based learning apps. Three Apple Distinguished Program teachers will share their ideas that incorporate a variety of apps, Common Core State Standards, and project based learning activities. The strategies will correlate to the SAMR model and make learning and teaching fun and exciting. All the content and strategies presented within this session will be available online to access, modify, and implement for use in the classroom. The ultimate goal is to provide a platform for teachers to acquire a variety of learning tools and projects that move from the Substitution level up through the Redefinition level of the SAMR model. Giving several examples of project based learning on CCSS for each level will ensure success. Attendees of this session will walk away with projects ideas and knowledge that will inspire and engage student learning that can be implemented in the classroom immediately.
