ICT Frameworks.

So ahead of professional development I thought I would go back over the Week 7 to 10 course material and review my understanding of a few ICT integration models and other frameworks covered during my studies.  So over my next couple of blogs I am planning to look at the following

  • SAMR
  • TIP
  • CLEM

I have chosen not to mention the RAT model as I believe I know have a good understanding of this model from its implementation within assignment 1 and 2 but will look to implement this further to analyse my practice when planning lessons for placement.

I will start with the SAMR model, that translates to Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition.  I find often that I am able to cement my knowledge further with the use of multiple formats so I begin my Google search and came across the following website. This site contained a short clip that demonstrated an example model in 120 seconds (I would recommend to all). I decided to continue my search and came across the following blog that had a great image that made things even clearer for me – thanks Glenn.

So here is my version of the SAMR model, I have put in an extra row to help me.








Augmentation Modification


Technology acts as a direct tool substitute with no functional change


Technology acts as a direct tool substitute with functional improvements Technology allows for significant task redesign.

Technology allows creation of new tasks, that before were not achievable.

No benefit – just changing how done


Makes life easier but no real benefit Allows some change

Go to new limits
