What is the SAMR Model?

  • SAMR is a model designed to help educators infuse technology into teaching and learning. Popularized by Dr. Ruben Puentedura, the  model supports and enables teachers to design, develop, and infuse digital learning experiences that utilize technology. The goal is  to transform learning experiences so they result in higher levels of achievement for students. ("SAMR". 2016. Kathy Schrock's Guide To Everything.

Google Accounts:

All HCS faculty members have Google Accounts which include access to G-Suite for Education and an email account.  

 

All HCS 6-12th grade students have Google Accounts which include access to G-Suite for Education and an email account.  G-Suite includes programs like Google Docs, Forms, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, and Classroom.  These are programs that are used across the district at multiple grade levels and as such are an expectation of learning and included in the AUP as "local technology resources".

 

Additionally, elementary students in grades 3-5 that have been, or are currently involved with the 1:1 pilot also have the same access to Google accounts.
