SAMRThe SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition) was a model derived by Dr. Ruben Puentedura in the 1980’s (

Dr Puentedura’s model is that technology supports and enables teachers to design, develop, and infuse digital learning experiences that utilise technology. The goal is  to transform learning experiences so they result in higher levels of achievement for students.

This model can be adapted to the Vocational Education Training (VET) sector when it comes to designing learning tools for adult learners. Have a look at an example at Adapting the SAMR model for adult learners Example.
