S.A.M.R. Model with iPads
We use the SAMR Model to cater to our contemporary learners who live and operate in a digital world and adapt easily to new technologies. This means that they use mobile devices to access learning wherever they are. They tap into knowledge at any time, and collaborate with friends, experts and learning communities. They participate in world events in real time. They locate resources, and are able to find, filter and use information to create, critically evaluate and publish content produced by themselves and others.
