Using SAMR to Teach Above the Line

Researchers have determined that technology integration typically moves through specific levels. The higher the level of an activity the greater the educational benefit.  SAMR is a model of tech integration designed by Dr. Ruben R. Puentedura, Ph.D. that is simple, easy to gauge, and offers all educators something to strive for.

The SAMR model  is a useful tool for helping teachers think about their own tech use as they begin to make small shifts in the design and implementation of  technology driven learning experiences to achieve the next level.
