The investigation shows that almost all objectives, teaching tasks and concepts of thecurriculum can be promoted with the aid of tablet computers. Nevertheless, a lot ofprerequisites in terms of hardware and software are required for a successful integration of tablets. In addition, there are some drawbacks, such as the lack of teacher training and slower text production.

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."

Erin Sawyer is a senior teacher at Fairfield Intermediate in New Zealand. She is currently experimenting with mobile device applications that assist learning in the classroom. The following extract is taken from conversational notes.
I wanted to use my iPad as a modeling tool for group instruction. In this example we are working towards understanding addition and subtraction of decimals. The application I used is called ShowMe a free app from the Apple Store. It allows the user to record learning conversations at the same time create notes. ShowMe allows users to embed their recordings on wikis, blogs and other websites.
I see this tool being used in the following contexts:
* Keep a record of conversations in an online Modeling book
* Learning conferences
* Assessment / evaluation conversations
* ePortfolio artefacts
This tool would be better with a text tool. Another improvement would be the ability to ‘live share’ as I could use the wireless to display notes through the class data projector rather than through a direct VGA connection. I really like that audio is recorded alongside the annotations. The iframe is a big advantage over other apps.
