Thank you for attending my session on ed tech and the SAMR Ladder. I hope you find these resources useful. If anything’s missing, you have questions, or there’s something cool you found that should be on this page, drop me a line and let me know!
Small Update: I’ve received several requests for copies of my slides. I unfortunately don’t share those, but I’d be happy to talk about visiting your school to repeat this session. 😀

Transition Questions for the SAMR Ladder
Analog Tech to Substitution
- What will I gain by replacing the older technology with the new technology?
Substitution to Augmentation
- Have I added an improvement to the task process that could not be accomplished with the older technology at a fundamental level?
- How does this feature contribute to my design?
Augmentation to Modiﬁcation
- How is the original task being modiﬁed?
- Does this modiﬁcation fundamentally depend upon the new technology?
- How does this modiﬁcation contribute to my design?
Modiﬁcation to Redeﬁnition
- What is the new task?
- Will any portion of the original task be retained?
- How is the new task uniquely made possible by the new technology?
- How does it contribute to my design?
