ADDIE vs. SAM in Real Life Examples
Carol Moore and Audrey Ranney, Presenters
You and your friends are planning to float the Illinois River on inner tubes this weekend, but you know your employer will be contacting you at some point to go over a project. You are getting close to evaluation time, and a promotion and raise could hinge on your ability to take the call whenever it comes in. You also know that there is a good chance that everything you take on the river with you will likely get wet at some point during your float trip. Work with your group to come up with an original design idea to keep your phone dry but still handy enough that you can hear it and answer it before it sends the call to voicemail.
- Must keep phone dry
- Must keep phone protected against sun/heat
- Must be where you can reach it and answer it quickly
- Must be kept clean
- Must be protected from being lost
- Use only items that are not intended for this purpose in real life (in other words, think of household objects that have a different intended purpose.
You notice that when people charge their devices, they often have to look for the cord, then bend down to retrieve it because it won't stay on the desk/table/other surface. Work with your team to create a solution using the items you have been given, with your table as the surface on which you want the cord to remain.
DO NOT POKE ANYTHING WITH THE PUSH PINS!!! They are for design idea use ONLY!
- What did you like about each?
- What did you not like about each?
- Which model do you feel like you would prefer to use?
- Are there different situations that you think might call for different models?
Differences Between ADDIE and SAM
Teresa Hightower, Presenter
What: SAM stands for Successive Approximation Model. This is an instructional designer’s development model that fosters creativity and is practical.
How It Is Different From Standard Addie Model:
- SAM approaches the development of instructional design products by addressing the performance need through iterations, repeated small steps, rather than with perfectly executed giant steps.
- SAM challenges the notion of moving through a linear process (like ADDIE) from Analysis to Evaluation as an effective strategy for designing learning events intending to produce greater performance.
- SAM addresses the roadblocks such as product quality, meeting timelines and budgets, and managing SMEs.
- Most importantly, SAM is an agile e-learning development process built specifically for the creation of performance-driven learning.
The Agile Advantage of SAM:
Sam starts with performance so that clients end with performance. SAM focuses on learner experiences, engagement, and motivation over content organization, presentation of information and post tests.
SAM has a 3-step process:
- Iterative Design
- Iterative Development
