SAMR Model for Technology Integration

 

Dr. Ruben Puentedura's SAMR model provides an excellent pathway to technology integration:

  • Augmentation - Technology acts as a direct tool substitute, with functional improvement.
  • Modification - Technology allows for a significant task redesign.
  • Redefinition - Technology allows for the creation of new tasks, previously inconceivable.
