Applying Examples to the SAMR Model[edit | edit source]
To understand how to apply an example to each level of the SAMR model, you must see the model as a continuum. If a lesson can continue with or without the use of a technology tool, then that is Substitution. But if a technology tool makes a lesson easier or improves a lesson, then that is Augmentation. In both levels, an instructor enhances the learning but does not transform it.
For a lesson to be transformed, means it cannot occur without the technology tool in place. For modification, technology must be present in order for the lesson to function. In the Redefinition level, the common classroom is replaced with a collaborative, student-centered environment where technology tools are the central focus of the learning.
|Substitution||Technology acts as a direct tool substitute, with no functional change||A word processor is used as a substitute for paper and pencil||Google Form test instead of a paper pencil test||Sharing a document through e-mail instead of a hard copy|
|Augmentation||Technology acts as a direct tool substitute, with functional improvement||Using spellcheck to correct spelling errors enhances the function of the task||Google Form test with automatic marking script||Sharing a file through Dropbox|
|Modification||Technology allows for significant task redesign||Using Googledocs to collaboratively write a paper or leave comments for one another significantly changes the task||Creative project such as an iMovie||Sharing a file using a learning management system like Canvas|
|Redefinition||Technology allows for the creation of new tasks, previously inconceivable||Writing a blog post to share work with the world and adding related multimedia creates an all new task previously impossible||Creative project with audio feedback||Sharing a file through iTunes U|
