SAMR Model

Here you will find more information about the SAMR model we reference in each of the Now Classrooms books.

The SAMR model was created by Dr. Ruben Puentedura to help educators talk about technology in the classroom. SAMR stands for the Substitution Augmentation Modification Redefinition Model. This model has helped all of our authors better explain the use of technology in the classroom.
