The Four Levels of the SAMR Model Redefinition:The iPad allows for the creation of new tasks that would otherwise be inconceivable without the technology. Modification:The iPad enables the redesign of significant portions of a task. Augmentation: The iPad replaces another technological tool, with significant functionality increase. For example, the iPad facilitates collaboration via various specific apps whose effect cannot be replicated on a computer. Substitution:The iPad stands in for another technological tool without a significant change in the tool’s function. For example, the iPad allows for note-taking that could just as easily be completed on a laptop computer. SAMR Resources
