Transcript of What is SAMR

The S.A.M.R Model:
A bright idea for using Educational Technology

What is SAMR?
Why is SAMR important?
As teachers design and implement lessons for 21st century learning, educational technology is crucial to our practice and no longer a choice. Knowing what to use and how to successfully integrate the technology into your teaching can be daunting. the choices and possibilities can sometimes be overwhelming. The SAMR model can help teachers reflect on their use of technology as they design and implement lessons. SAMR is meant as a
reflection tool
. It provides teachers with a
common language
as teachers engage in using educational technology and facilitates a community of practice. Just as students working at the upper levels in blooms taxonomy show improved skills and outcomes, students engaged in using technology at the upper levels of SAMR show increased levels of learning. As technology improves and grows,
SAMR provides a framework
for helping teachers harness educational technologies to teach and guide students as the possibilities for using their knowledge grows and grows.
How does SAMR Work?
Transform learning by integrating technology into teaching and learning. You can use the SAMR model to evaluate how technology is being integrated into your classroom.
SAMR at Cornelia!
We do so many exiting things already! As we add to and modify our lessons and curriculum, SAMR can help us design and develop quality digital learning experiences for students. We can use this tool with its common language as we work together in our PLC's.
SAMR Resources
Just as bloom's taxonomy defines different levels of thinking, learning, and understanding, the SAMR model defines levels of technology integration for teaching and learning. The SAMR model was designed by Dr. Ruben R. Puentedura, PH. D. He is the founder and president of Hippasus, a consulting firm that concentrates on applications of information technologies in education. He created the SAMR model to be used as a guide for selecting, using, and evaluating technology in teaching and learning.
Just as blooms has a beginning in the hierarchy of understanding, so does the SAMR model.
Using technology to enhance lessons and activities directly benefit student's learning. Not all lessons or activities need to be, or will be, at the top level.
However, just as in blooms we strive to get students to the upper levels where learning is more powerful and the greatest gains are made.
Transforming lessons and activities with technology provides for richer learning experiences where students are using higher level thinking skills.
Tech acts as a direct tool substitute, with no functional change
Tech acts as a direct tool substitute, with functional improvement
Tech allows for significant task redesign
Tech allows for the creation of new tasks, previously inconceivable
Students use Google docs to word process writing tasks
Teacher uses SMART board to communicate and explain concepts
Students use Google to research a subject using the internet
Students create Google Forms to collect and analyze data
Students use Google Sites to create a digital learning portfolio that can be shared with teachers, parents, and community
Students use Lucid Chart to create thinking maps and insert images into their diagrams
Students use WeVideo to explain/demonstrate terms about solids and liquids in science; viscous-translucent-flexible-rigid
Students use Kidblog to share ideas and collaborate digitally with students in other schools
Students explore the White House and its collection of art pieces using Google Earth
Students use Google Hangouts to connect to a tour of another city hosted by a class in that city
