National Teachers Academy is a high needs Chicago Public Schools.  Four teachers have received grants for 1:1 iPads in intermediate math, intermediate science, middle school special education, and school-wide music.   National Teachers Academy chose to evaluate technology use with Ruben Putendera’s SAMR model, which defines implementation of technology as Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, or Redefinition. The teachers have spent the year striving to redefine the classroom using technology in a 1:1 environment. After a brief explanation of the SAMR model, these teachers will share how the classroom changed and how students and teachers became empowered through the use of technology. They will present variety of tools and how they have transformed learning in the four different classrooms. Jennie will share how technology can be used for math metacognition, Anita will share how tools can be used to differentiate in the special education classroom, Holly will share how iPads have elevated music analysis and creation, and Autumn will share how multimedia science journals and blogging changed the science classroom.  Participants will take away teacher tested strategies and applications of successful implementation of technology tools that are redefining the classroom.
