The descriptions of technology integration provided in this document are based on Ruben R. Puentedura SAMR Models of Technology Integration. Puentedura identifies four levels of technology integration; two of which fall into the Enhancement category and two that fall into the Transformation category.



The categories...


Substitution – Tech acts as a direct tool substitute, with no functional change (Enhancement)


Augmentation – Tech acts as a direct tool substitute, with functional improvement (Enhancement)


Modification – Tech allows for significant task redesign (Transformation)


Redefinition – Tech allows for the creation of new tasks, previously inconceivable (Transformation)



In this wiki I have provided three examples of what this might look in a classroom; one in elementary, middle, and high schools. It is quite easy to argue that some might better fit into one category but that misses the point.  The idea is to use these as general guides of your own, or others, level of technology integration.  The intention is to start conversations about what is effective technology integration and to promote the consideration of the relationship between good pedagogy and effective technology integration.
