The study was aimed at identifying the learners’ vocabulary learning strategies as they were engaged in tasks assigned along the SAMR model. A class of EFL learners was taught vocabulary with the assignments following SAMR. The model led them through four stages: substitution, augmentation, modification, and redefinition. The results showed that the learners increasingly used digital technology to accomplish their tasks. Their strategies were relatively more diverse, too. The metacognitive and social strategies, however, did not emerge substantially in their report.
