Redefine your eLearning to focus on the task not the tool with the SAMR model

Deciding whether to go digital is a decision for schools which needs careful consideration. This workshop will work with Leadership Teams to unpack why schools want to start a digital learning journey and what factors need consideration. 

"One thing that schools are often too busy to ask is 'Why are we starting this digital learning journey?’ And yet it is this question that be the difference between an ineffective deployment that focuses on the tool, and an effective one that instead focuses on redefining learning tasks, with the flow-on effect of improving student outcome. 

This is where the revolutionary SAMR model and its focus on increasing how well technology supports phases of learning (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition) can provide not only an early planning advantage, but also an ongoing reflective framework for schools to keep their focus on students and their learning tasks.

SAMR can inform your planning for the Flipped Classroom, 1-1 laptops, iPads and tablets, BYOD, online tools, and any other form of technology integration. This framework will support Leadership Teams and Teachers in evaluating their decisions around digital implementation."
