The SAMR model enables the classification of level of technology use by educators: Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redefinition. It is rather similar to the 5 levels of tech integration described in the original Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow (ACOT) research: Entry (non- or hesitant use), Adoption, Adaptation, Appropriation, and Innovation. This post includes sample apps for each level of the SAMR model, which can be helpful for educators trying to get handle on how to use this framework productively.

Assistive Technology and the 1:1 Student

Assistive Technology and the 1:1 Student | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it

"Meaghan Roper, a junior at Burlington High School, shares a similar story with the iPad. When Meaghan was six years old, she was diagnosed with a visual impairment. In the eighth grade, she started to notice a decline in her vision. She sought out surgery to repair or delay her vision decline, and while successful, the procedure did not hold for very long.

 

A Transformative Experience

 

Meaghan recalls her first moments with the iPad and how she and her liaison discovered the variety of new opportunities that this one device presented. One of the first things she used was the ability to invert the colors of the screen. The iPad gives users the opportunity to read predominantly black text on a lighter screen, or to invert the colors and overlay white text on a black screen. This one feature, Meaghan recalls, was "transformative" in her learning of what the iPad could offer her educational experience.

 

Apps for Every Need

 

In Meaghan's day-to-day operation of the iPad, she uses several applications to manage her content. It doesn't take her too many apps to get through her school day. She's thankful that, along with transitioning to the iPad, Burlington also married the Google Apps for Education suite with this device. She finds ease in accessing Google Docs from multiple devices and knowing that her work will always be safe, secure and not dependent on a machine's functionality."

Through the use of assistive technology special needs students are able to learn to use ICT effectively and appropriately to access, create and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively, and in their lives beyond school in the 21st century.

 

The blog following blog by Andrew Marcinek, Instructional Technology Specialist, writes about how iPads are being used as assistive devices. He describes the iPad as a opening for many, showing the potential of the iPad as an assistive technology and how it can change learning for students with impairments. Andrew writes about meaghan and how she used the iPad and applications throughout her schooling. Its worth a read.

14 Ways To Store And Share Files On The iPad | educational technology for teachers

14 Ways To Store And Share Files On The iPad | educational technology for teachers | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it

iPads are neat little devices that can pretty much do it all: play music, support interactive content, reshape how we think of textbooks, produce high-quality videos, and even take a step back and function as a good old-fashioned typewriter.

I have a first edition iPad.  It took me awhile to realize that the only way I could get a file onto the iPad was to get the original file into the cloud from another computer. I wish I had read this article when I first got my machine! 

Hope Kennedy's curator insight, February 25, 2013 1:07 PM

I think some teachers worry about sharing files.  This might be a solution

Apps in Education: SAMR Model Using iPad Apps Poster

Apps in Education: SAMR Model Using iPad Apps Poster | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it

If the SAMR model is new to you here is a brief explanation of the four letters that make it up:

S- Substitution - Tech acts as a direct tool substitute, with no functional change.
A - Augmentation - Tech acts as a direct tool substitute, with functional improvement.
M- Modification - Tech allows for significant task redesign.
R - Redefinition - Tech allows for the creation of new tasks, previously inconceivable.

The SAMR Model begins with Substitution (as in read the poster from the bottom up to more clearly understand the model), moving to Augmentation, then Modification and finishing with Redefinition. 

The SAMR model is the work of Ruben R. Puentedura, Ph.D. from M.I.T. For more information on the SAMR model check out his website at http://hippasus.com/rrpweblog/.

For an indepth look you may want to check out the presentation from August 23, 2012 with the title "The SAMR Model: Background and Exemplars."

SAMR model list of suggested apps...

Shannon Soger's curator insight, January 7, 7:46 PM

Great poster, but it's important to note that what you're doing with the app will depend what SAMR level the lesson is. Keynote CAN be at Modification, but it can also be used as Substitution. For example, if a student is typing an "About Me" slide in Keynote, the technology is simply acting as a direct tool with no functional change in the task. However, if a student created an "About Me" presentation in Keynote that contained Photo Booth pictures of his/her family, and video of a family tradition that would bring the lesson to Modification. The student could not have "brought his/family" into his presentation without the use of the technology.
