The SAMR Challenge

During this challenge you will be using The SAMR Model created by Reuben Puentedura to facilitates discussions around how technology can be used to effectively transform student learning.

The SAMR Challenge


  • A teacher you have been working with to further their practice has identified technology integration as an area of need.
  • Use the SAMR Model (right) to identify the level at which technology is currently being integrated in their classroom (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification or Redefinition).
  • Provide descriptive feedback to further integrate technology to have a greater impact on student learning.

Sample Video

Let’s watch how some classrooms are using technology to impact student learning.

Click Here then watch both video clips in iTunes.

  • Clip#3 iPad in High School English Secondary
  • Clip#1 iPad eBook Publishing Elementary

Use the Worksheet to evaluate the level of technology being used by the students in each classroom. Let's take a survey to see what level the group thinks each video falls on the SAMR Model - Click Here

In Partners, for each video:

  • Reveal what level you believe technology is being using in this classroom (SAM or R)
  • Explain why you chose that level
  • Defend your choice
  • Does your partner agree or disagree? Why?

In your table group using a Round Robin format

Share your suggestions (descriptive feedback) on how you could further integrate technology in one of these classrooms to have a greater impact on student learning.

Let's see if your evaluation has changed. Click Here to take the survey again.
