Parkway looks to the SAMR Model developed by Dr. Ruben Puentedura as a framework for planning meaningful digital learning experiences that are transformative. The SAMR Model helps teachers plan and reflect on the technology experiences they are offering students. The goal is to plan lessons that are transformative to learning rather than ones that just enhance the learning experience when possible.
