Join Kim Cofino on 30-31 August for Transforming Your Classroom: Using the SAMR Model to Integrate Technology.
Teaching internationally can be a real adventure. The excitement, enthusiasm and challenge that comes with our everyday experiences are what makes teaching internationally so rewarding. You’re already a risk taker! One of the most exciting ways to take risks in your classroom is to use technology to redefine the way we teach and learn.
The SAMR model of curriculum development highlights 4 phases of growth (between enhancement and transformation): substitution, augmentation, modification, and redefinition.
Together with the workshop participants, Kim Cofino will explore new ways to move towards transformation in your classroom. From new pedagogical approaches, to effective technology tools, to transferrable skills, and a deeper understanding of digital citizenship, we will use this workshop as another exciting opportunity to take a risk and try something new!
