What is Technology Integration

The SAMR model show below was developed by Dr. Ruben R. Puentedura and is designed to help educators integrate technology into their curriculum.  

The SAMR model demonstrates the progression from simply replacing a non-technical tool with a technical one to a transformational experience; where students use technology to do things that would have otherwise been impossible without it.
