SAMR and the EdTech Quintet: New Directions
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM:
Format: Concurrent Session - 60 Minutes
Brief Session Description: In the years since they were first introduced, SAMR and the EdTech Quintet have proven their value as frameworks to help guide the use of technology in education. Recent research has further enhanced the power of both models, extending their use to particularly challenging scenarios, and connecting them with current research in social learning. In this session we will review some of these new directions, focusing in particular on practical applications in K-12 education. We will also see how both models can be used to scaffold teacher professional development, not just in terms of what happens in the classroom, but also in terms of teacher learning itself.
