Dr. Alice Christie’s 7C Model


To what extent does hardware, software, mobile apps, mobile devices, or instructional strategies allow students and teachers to:

  • Create (write, draw, make movies, make music, etc.);
  • Connect (reach out and connect with others locally or globally, F2F or virtually);
  • Communicate (talk with others, share ideas, publicize creations, etc.);
  • Collaborate (work, write, draw, brainstorm with others);
  • Contextualize (view from a more global context, relate one idea with another, relate one content area with another, see interrelationships);
  • Critique (think critically about issues or ideas; evaluate relevance, reliability, credibility, authority, or accuracy); and
  • Choose (topic, tool, process).
