4th Grade SMORE Description

Considerations

  • How much have the iPads already been in use in the students' everyday processes?
  • What apps are the students already familiar with?
  • Don't recreate the wheel. If the iPads have been used quite a bit, often just tweaking what you are doing will help you raise the level of SAMR.
  • Take the jump! Try something new! Your students will rise to the occasion with your support!
