Several sections of the standards are measured using the SAMR model.
The SAMR model of measuring how technology is used in the classroom has 4 levels.
The 4 levels are grouped into two sections; the Substitution and Augmentation levels are viewed as enhancements, while the Modification and Redefinition are transformational in terms of how technology supports learning.
Section 1, includes:
Technology acts as a direct substitute, with no functional change.
Technology acts as a direct substitute, with functional improvement.
Section 2, includes:
Technology allows for significant task redesign.
Technology allows for the creation of new tasks, previously inconceivable.
Instead of reading a physical copy of a book the students read an ebook version.
Functional improvement, an ebook version that allows students to highlight, take notes, and access a dictionary to look up words, all from within the ebook reader.
Collaborative project where they co-write a character analysis using Google Docs and record an audio podcast that will be shared with the class.
Use technology to create a complex interactive map of all the character interactions with an individual character in the story. Record reenactments of those interactions and link them to the interactive map.
