This post is geared to courses being offered through iTunes U  but many of the ideas and tools may be helpful for any online class. The list includes:

* Describe clear learning outcomes

* Articulate an active learning pathway

* Incorporate diverse learning materials

* Make it interactive

* Leverage mobility and built-in tools

* Leave the classroom

* Start from scratch

* Apply the SAMR model to your class tasks

Although the apps provided are geared to the iPad the SAMR model provides ideas that you might use with other tablets or computers.

Framework for Professional Development: SAMR Template & Infographic | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

"My colleague, Silvana Meneghini, and I have been working on developing a Professional Development framework for embedding technology use and modern learning litercies based on Ruben Puentedura's SAMR model.

The template consists of 4 Focus Areas. Each stage of the SAMR model consists of 4 focus areas in the template, that support vision, planning, and evaluation in activity and task design as well as a professional development framework."

If you are considering using the SAMR model to design lesson plans/units you should consider checking out this post. There is a very detailed template that helps you walk through the steps and consider how to best design your lesson/unit. The template is detailed and you may download it as a pdf. An example is included.

Many are turning to the SAMR model as a guide to integrate technology into their curriculum. If this model is new to you search this Scoop.it or type SAMR in your favorite search engine and you will find a wide variety of resources.

This infographic has many ThingLinked activities and resources. To get to them click through to the post. The infographic includes five pieces of support material, including over 60 SAMR examples and resources. There are also four questions that may help you determine if the technology is an enhancement or transformative. One is below.

* Does the technology/tool allow for collaboration (e.g. within a school, district, state, nation, globe, experts, PLN)?

This post is chock full of information as well as introducing the new acronym SASSY (see infographic above).
