    2. The SAMR model truly covers the entire spectrum of tech integration. Every lesson, activity and designer has an entry point and those at the highest levels can be continually challenged to redefine learning.

      I look forward to seeing the progression that the SAMR model can have in the future as technology develops further.

I believe that it is more important with what one can do with their knowledge rather than being able to simply claim they have said knowledge, it is important to be useful and applicable to the world.

    2. . Teachers are coaches of understanding, not mere purveyors of content knowl-edge, skill, or activity. They focus on ensuring that learning happens, not just teaching

    3. The UbD framework helps focus curriculum and teaching on the develop-ment and deepening of student understanding and transfer of learning (i.e., the ability to effectively use content knowledge and skill).

Whether you are using it to communicate with others or to research information on various subjects, the ability to use the WWW is expansive and on-demand.

    1. Understanding basic principles, purpose, and applications of coding and programming languages.

    2. Good online readers know the tools and strategies that can be used to search for and locate people, resources, and information. They then know how to judge the credibility of these sources.
