The SAMR model is a roadmap which takes you from enhancing the learning to transforming the learning through ICT. There are four progressive paths being S – Substitution, A – Augmentiation, M – Modification and R for Redefintion.I think this model is crucial in today’s school environment, particularly with BYOD increasing in schools.
At the start of the roadmap there aretwo pathways to enhancement of learning.The most basic one is Substitution This is where technology is used like a pencil and paper, it is a direct tool substitute for example publishing a story in Word.
It’s not all about the technology, remember that quality learning is a bit like a black forest gateau with layers…
I like how the SMAR model enables common language so teachers can draw out what they do and why.Children/Teachers need to be exposed to the right tools to be able to move from enhancing to transformation
