SAMR Model


Journal Articles

The following peer-reviewed journal articles explore the theme of technology in the classroom from a variety of perspectives.  While not all of these articles are required reading, you are encouraged to spend some time exploring them.  The articles have been loosely organized according to topics being explored in this course; however, they may (and probably will) address more than just one area or topic.


You may use these articles as a research base for your final paper.  You may also use other recent peer-reviewed journal articles, but doing so is not required. 


These are also the articles that you will choose from in your seminar groups.  Again, other articles can be used, but it is not necessary.
