I appreciate that this post is not about "tech" per se, but rather invites us to reconsider how we "do" classrooms.

Step 2 - What level of technology will be used? SAMR (as in Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition) are shown in the infographic, but there are other ways to look at the level of technology.
