The Concepts (Grouped)
Some things about SAMR
- you can’t use the SAMR model if technology isn’t being used; the SAMR model is used to measure how technology is being used, therefore, if technology isn’t present in a lesson, the SAMR model doesn’t apply.
- the technology has to be used by the students (i.e. teachers using the copier to print worksheets doesn’t qualify).
- the difference between augmentation and substitution is functional improvement; meaning, something has to be added to the quality of the lesson in order for technology to augment it (i.e. using Excel to graph points on a coordinate plane, but then also using the features of the program (Excel) to add color, make it 3-D, test the students with plot points, etc.)
- as you move above the line there is more communication/collaboration – bring outside people into the mix (or connect the students in the class in a meaningful way that goes beyond a group discussion that could be done in person).
- the S[ubsitution] and the A[ugmentation] enhance the lesson but the M[odification] and the R[edefinition] transform the lesson.
- for the step of redefinition technology is essential. If it is missing, the lesson cannot be performed. The technology allows for something that was previously inconcievable before, without it (i.e. connecting with an expert)
Depth of Knowledge (DOK)
Some things about DOK
Level 1 & 2 are more fact based
Level 3 requires extended thinking
Level 3 & 4 have no right answer/are open-ended
Level 3 non examples are valuable on this level, also why questions; it’s a form of reasoning
Level 4 occurs over time
