8 Examples of Transforming Lessons Through the SAMR Cycle | Emerging Education Technologies

8 Examples of Transforming Lessons Through the SAMR Cycle | Emerging Education Technologies | Australian Continent |
The SAMR Model for integrating technology into teaching, developed by Dr. Ruben Puentedura, has gained a good deal of exposure in recent years. “SAMR” is an acronym that stands for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition. The SAMR model provides a technique for moving through degrees of technology adoption to find more meaningful uses of technology in teaching and move away from simply using “tech for tech’s sake”.

We recently discussed the SAMR model during an Academic Technology Work Group meeting at The College of Westchester. We examined the video, SAMR in 120 Seconds. One thing that really struck me is how much the example helped, so I made it a point to gather and/or create some more examples.

As my use of the SAMR model develops, I am constantly looking for fresh ideas and examples of high end digital pedagogy. The 8 Redefinition examples in this article are a starting point in getting the creative juices flowing in how I can adapt the idea for my own classroom. I would have appreciated more detail in these examples, however it's a start.

I am delighted to announce that I will be one of the new authors that will be writing for Maps 101's newest educational platform: the Geography News Network.  Many schools and districts across the country have subscriptions to this online service that provides thousands of supplemental materials and lesson plans for geography, earth science, history and social studies teachers.  If your school district does not currently have a subscription, you can sign up for a free trial subscription.

Geography into perspective.

I believe it is very important for viewers to watch such channels. You get a chance to learn about other cultures around the world and relate them to themselves and the world around them. It is a great educational site.
