Teachers are inundated with apps; but knowing when, why, and how to integrate technology in the classroom is more important than any particular tech tool. This issue will discuss how to use the SAMR model for tech integration, check for superficial uses of technology, amplify engagement, work around logistical constraints, and transform learning with technology. Special attention will be given to what technology integration actually looks like in practice. So, if you find yourself at the buffet of ed. tech. options, but can’t find a fork—this one’s for you.
