1:1 in the Math Classroom: The SAMR ModelThe hot new topic at Waukesha North High School is the SAMR model. This model was developed by Dr. Ruben Puentudura to guide teachers with integrating technology to increase overall student understanding, success, and achievement. The four levels of the SAMR model are as follows: Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition. In the substitution level, the technology acts as a direct substitute. The next level is augmentation. In the modification level the technology allows for significant task redesign. In the redefinition level the technology allows us to do things that were never before possible.S.A.S.S.Y. SAMR: Toolkit for Educators to Transform InstructionTCEA is upon us and clearly SAMR is a hot topic. I had the pleasure to meet the father of the SAMR model (check out recaps of his sessions HERE), Dr. Ruben Puentedura ***, last year at iPad Summit and have spent the past few months digesting, research, and curating SAMR resources for teachers. (Don’t Miss “Groovy Graphics in the iClassroom”!) Met Dr, Ruben with Fellow ADE’s: Michelle Cordy, Lisa Johnson, Dr. In order to provide teachers with an easy to follow framework to digest and apply the model to their own practices and instruction, I decided to create my own acronym, S.A.S.S.Y. based on an adaptation of Dr. S: STUDENTS and StorytellingA: Awesome ASSESSMENT (Teacher-Driven and Student-Driven)S: SOCIAL (Voice and Collaboration)S: SEEK: Research and Visualization (Finding it, Citing it, and Displaying it)Y: YOU: Think about Your Own Thinking… Once the acronym was in place, I built an infographic and then thing linked app-tivities and instructional resources on top of it.
