SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition) model, developed
by Dr. Ruben Puentedura,
allows teachers to reflect on how technology is being integrated in the
classroom. This framework provides another way for educators to visualize and
discuss HOW technology can be integrated and HOW it can transform instruction
SAMR Institute & Camp has been uniquely developed with YOU in mind. We’re
merging research and data with choice and engagement, as well as some
face-to-face learning with some online learning. Throughout the initial two-day
institute, we will learn from Dr. Ruben Puentedura, the
expert behind SAMR. You will learn the essential components of the SAMR Model,
a key research study in educational technology that describes technology
integration through four levels. Then you will learn from other educators in
our region who have implemented the SAMR Model, and explore resources for
further understanding. Later we will engage in activities to measure student
outcomes as they relate to SAMR. These activities will empower you to
have an autonomous understanding of how to approach educational technology
and evaluate student work.
Camp, you will learn how to integrate laptops/iPads into classroom instruction
using these models. You will develop a unit or lesson that can be implemented
in the classroom, then return to share and collaborate with others in an edcamp-style
reflection and sharing day. We will have an online portal for sharing resources
and lessons as well as host Twitter chats to keep you informed and motivated to
implement SAMR today!
