Tech Tuesday – Science Content-Area Tech Integration

How do you move scientific reasoning “above th eline”?  In this session, learn how to move toward transformational learning tasks (modification, redefinition on SAMR) in the science classroom.


  • As a conversation starter, we reviewed this SAMR Introduction video from Common Sense Media
  • Using our idea walls, sketch out what a technology infused lesson looked like this past week.
  • In a gallery walk, we will then identify what level on the SAMR model those activities fall.  Let’s also discuss how the tools mentioned can be used to move up the SAMR model to new learning experiences that did not exist without our technology.
  • Alternately, we can explore reviewed tools by Common Sense Media, FreeTech4Teachers and research-proven programs on Edutopia’s research brief.  Also, trusted content (video, some simulations, etc.) is available at
  • Later, I will post an ICYMI that recaps some of the suggestions made in-session and then what other suggestions I might have
