MSET has an exciting lineup of professional development webinars this month!
Putting the SAMR Model into Practice & Supporting High School Students as they Transition to College
Join us Wednesday, April 13 at 8PM EDT for a double session. First, Jeromie Whalen, a technology teacher at Northampton Public Schools in Massachusetts is going to discuss putting the SAMR model into practice. Not familiar with the SAMR model? Essentially, it is a model that helps us to determine the right tool based on the task we want students to complete. A visual depiction of the model is included below.
