Leverage Technology Powerfully with the SAMR Model #BCSLearns

The S.A.M.R. framework for technology integration offers us a perspective, if not a hierarchy, of the a continuum that we ought to recognize allowing us to leverage technology use among our students to maximize their learning.  Below is a description of the framework via text & image followed by two videos describing the model.  The first video explains the model and the second video uses the various types of coffee options at Starbucks as a metaphor for the framework.  Check them out!

If you were to put percentages by each “level”, where would your students be spending the most time with their use of technology?  How could you increase the percentage of time students spend at the Modification and Redefinition levels?

Substitution – tech acts as a direct tool substitute, with no functional change
Augmentation – tech acts as a direct tool substitute, with functional improvement
Modification – tech allows for significant task redesign
Redefinition – (the ultimate goal) tech allows for the creation of new tasks, previously inconceivable
