An Framework for Instructional Technology


SAMR was created by Rueben Puentedura as a framework to help evaluate how we use technological tools in our learning tasks.

There are 4 levels:
  • Substitution
  • Augmentation
  • Modification
  • Redefinition

The below resources outline further the model. The clip is an overview by Rueben Punetedura himself. Below that you will find a haiku deck slide stack you may use as well as a prezi with examples at the bottom of the page.
