Click here for a PDF file of a presentation I gave in Budapest at the annual CEESA conference.
SAMR is a framework for looking at technology integration in steps - at the bottom level, a teacher is simply substituting what they used to do. Then we move to augmentation, modification and finally redefinition.
The skeptic in me always gets a little louder whenever the words "framework, technology, and integration" are used in the same sentence. But a simple question remains in my mind; if you teach the same way you have always taught, simply adding in technology, what's the point of using technology?
There's more to speak about SAMR, and getting teachers to ask themselves this simple question, but for now, please feel free to use the notes.
