Goals
The goal of this session is to explore the SAMR model (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redefinition) for technology use and how it can be used to leverage technology to plan and implement highly effective learning. Participants will explore four online tools while analyzing the model.

Learning OutcomesAt the conclusion of the session, participants will be able to understand the stages of the SAMR model and how they can be used to integrate technology at varying stages of complexity. Several online tools will be used to demonstrate the Model. Tools will include: vocaroo, fotobabble, spreaker, Thinglink, Storybird

The SAMR Model - Enhancing Technology Integration from Enhancing to Transformation

Level
Definition
Questions
Examples
Functional Change
Redefinition
Tech allows for creation of new tasks, previously inconceivable
What will I gain by replacing the older technology with the new technology?
Students in groups collaborate on google document to create a global project. The project could include photographs, graphics, video, etc.
Use available technology to completely redesign task
Modification
Technology allows for significant task redesign
Have I added a feature to the task process that could not be done with the older technology at a fundamental level
How does this feature contribute to my design?
Google document integrating a spreadsheet and calculating sums and creating a graph to explain spreadsheet data and provide visual.
Productivity increase
Augmentation
Technology acts as direct tool substitute, with functional improvement
How is the original task being modified?
Does this modification depend upon the new technology?
How does this modification contribute to my design?
Google document using spell check to correct errors.
using same tool with some functional improvement
Substitution
Technology acts as a direct tool substitute, with no functional change.
What is the new task?
Will it replace or supplement older tasks?
How is it uniquely made possible by the new technology?
How does it contribute to my design?
Google document instead of pencil and paper
No cut and paste, no spell check, direct substitution.
