SAMR: An Introduction

Welcome and Overview

Welcome to the Innovation Showcase 2014. This session focuses on an introduction to SAMR. It is a self-paced, self-led session with suggested time frames for each learning target and its activities. Activities in today's session are not device specific. We suggest you use your earbuds for video viewing.


If you are unable to finish during the allotted Innovation Showcase time frame, you are welcome to continue on your own time at your own pace. Facilitators are available to assist if you have questions, but they are not delivering content today.


There is also an opportunity for you to collaborate virtually with other teachers at other schools who are also in the SAMR session today. Feel free to utilize the Today's Meet link at any time. The link is also listed below the learning targets on this SMORE.
