On the value or otherwise of SAMR, RAT etc. – Tilting at windmills? Updated 30 August, 2016: Added mention of @downes’ pointers to peer review literature using SAMR.

On the value or otherwise of SAMR, RAT etc. – Tilting at windmills?

Evolved into a small section There definitely seems to be a common problem when it comes to thinking about evaluating the use of digital technology in learning and teaching. Actually, there are quite a few, but the one I’m interested in here is how people (mostly teachers, but students as well – and perhaps should throw organisations in here as well) perceive what they are doing with digital technology. This is a topic that’s been picked up recently by some NGL folk as the course has pointed them to the SAMR model (originally), but now to the RAT model. Digital Literacy Dover: The RAT, SAMr, Transformative Technology, & Occam's Razor. Digital technologies are all well and good, but if we're going to use these, can we at least make sure we are actually changing what is possible to achieve?

For our students to learn? Probably the single greatest challenge in my role is to encourage ICT use that does not make the mistake of just replacing or substituting pixels for pages. There are two frameworks, SAMR and RAT, I prefer RAT, but for some reason SAMR seems to get a lot more attention, which is crazy in my opinion, it's far too complex to be of any really practical use, and it's often misinterpreted.

Teaching effectively with technology may seem even more challenging – but tempting at the same time. There is a fast growing number of teachers who believe that technology in not yet another ‘gizmo’, another irritating dubious novelty on their well established way to success in education but a genuinely revolutionary invention which opens amazing possibilities in effective (and fascinating) teaching and learning. These teachers, however, keep asking: How do I do it? How to make it work best for me? The question is: How can teachers integrate technology into their teaching successfully?

During these fast paced rounds of presentations a stopwatch counts down from 3:00 minutes in which you have the time to tell your story. Thanks to Fons van der Berg and Craig McNeil for filming my presentation. I added a video of my keynote and edited it together in Final Cut Pro using the multi-cam angle viewer function. Which worked surprisingly smoothly. The SAMR animation below was made with Hype, a brilliant app for the Mac that easily creates HTML5 widgets.

Mr. C's SharesEase. I always teach lessons with the SAMR model in mind, but often wonder if I am truly interrupting the model correctly.

After watching a math lesson evolve with the use of technology I put together the following model, based on my understanding of SAMR. Below my model is my explanation. Do you agree with the model? Is my thinking correct? For reference, I’ve included Dr. I believe that SAMR is still widely misunderstood and not used with consistency. Like this: Like Loading...
