  • Definition:

    SAMR” is an acronym that stands for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition. The SAMR model, developed by Dr. Ruben Puentedura, 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”. The model supports and enables teachers to design, develop, and infuse digital learning experiences that utilize technology. The goal is  to transform learning experiences so they result in higher levels of achievement for students.
