The SAMR model has been developed by Dr Ruben Puentedura to equip educators in analyzing technology to discover how effective it is at supporting learning.

This course will introduce you to this model, and show you how to A. Use it to plan for best practice technology use, OR B. Audit and re-vitalise existing eLearning programs.

By drawing on the extensive experience of Jonathan Nalder (an Apple Distinguished Educator and NMC K-12 Ambassador) in applying and sharing about SAMR, as well as exclusive snippets of footage and interviews with Dr Ruben and links to the research behind SAMR, this course will connect you to the source of what has made SAMR such a widely used model, as well as give you practical ways to begin to apply it in your context.

The creation of this course has been supported by Dr Ruben Puentedura and the New Media Consortium. View a short introduction from Dr Ruben here:
