This workshop will guide novice and more seasoned classroom-based technology users into integrating technology in a strategic and impactful way. In this workshop participants will review the SAMR Model and Bloom’s Taxonomy, two frameworks used by educators to help design tasks and lessons that use technology, as well as understand how they impact student outcomes. Participants will also be tasked with thinking about the apps and websites they are currently using in their curriculum.
