Integration + Resources + Motivation

While I am not suggesting that we should ALWAYS replace these traditional assignments, I do know that when students climb up the SAMR ladder, more features are possible to help them reach higher order thinking skills. Remember, it is about the USE of the app, not the app itself that can raise the thinking skill level. Also, many of these apps/programs can shuffle around the matrix depending on use, or even combined for greater effect.

When deciding what tool(s) you would like to use with students, remember that most sites require parent permission if the student is under 13. The "Terms of Use" and "Privacy Policies" from the tools in the matrix are listed here:
