SAMR Model – More than just using ICT’s

Following a brief introduction to the SAMR concept in our lecture earlier this week, there have since been a number of blog posts by my fellow students and I have also searched a little further to gain some clarification for myself regarding this model when looking at ICT usage in the classroom.  I stumbled across this YouTube video, providing a beginners explanation by Mark Anderson, who explains very simply the four levels of ICT use in the classroom.  The SAMR model, first developed by DR  Ruben R. Puentedura is about recognising that ICT’s have and are used for basic enhancement as a substitution materials; for augmentation purposes providing some functional improvement; but more importantly for transformational purposes through modification and redefinition.

For additional clarification have a look at the following YouTube video which is presented by  Ruben R. Puentedura himself.
