SAMR Model as a Professional Development Framework for Growth

Let’s take a closer look at Ruben Puentedura’s technology integration SAMR model and how it can be applied as a Professional Development framework for growth in education.

How can educators use the model to inspire upward movement from using technology to substitute traditionally taught lessons towards transforming teaching and our own professional  learning.

Bringing together the SAMR framework with TPACK (Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge) allows teachers and technology coaches to visualize the interconnectedness of the models, making gaps more evident and point to  “support opportunities” to move toward transformation.
