Use the SAMR Model to determine if the chosen technology is the best choice as related to learning targets and 21st century skills.  The model prompts teachers to choose fewer of the substitution level activities and choose more augmentation, modification, or redefinition.  Redefinition is going to use more critical thinking, creativity, and problem solving skills.
