Powtoon Overview Video

Powtoon & the SAMR Model

Dr. Ruben Puentedura’s SAMR model offers a lens for examining how technology is adopted in a classroom. As you strive to incorporate online tools into your classroom, we encourage you to use this model as an analytic tool.

Here is an example of how Powtoon might fit the SAMR model:

Learning Activities

Science

Students can create a Powtoon that takes you on a tour of a cell or walks you through the step-by-step process of a lab experiment.

English/Language Arts

Students can create a Powtoon as a book report.

Arts

Students can describe significant historical painters or musicians in their Powtoon.

Other

Students can introduce themselves to a new class by creating a Powtoon about them.
