What does transformation mean? How does it work?





What do the different levels of SAMR look like in practice?

Task: As a group, think of a "standard" project for your subject area and develop it through the stages of SAMR. What would it look like at Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition. Add your thinking to this Google Doc:


Option 1: 1:30 - 2:00 Exploring project examples


Option 2: 1:30 - 2:00: Project Share

  • In grade level/subject based teams, share a project or sample of student work you have with you
  • You may want to use the LAST protocol from Project Zero (Visible Thinking) to discuss this work (feel free to use the protocol with unit planners as well as student work) (background info on LAST)
  • discuss how to move this project idea one step further towards redefinition

2:00 - 2:10: Project Time:

Task: Describe the SAMR stages for your project idea. Where does it fall? Why? Document your thinking on this Google Doc.
