Our Goal

Today we want you to work on creating an activity on Google Apps for Education that can be used within your classrooms. 

The thought is that you should develop this activity and also understand where it falls within the SAMR model. 

If you are having a tough time thinking about where to start consider these questions:

  • What is your favorite lesson to teach?
  • Is this something that you can use now? 
  • Is this something I can use with students later this year as I plan a 1:1 unit?
  • Is this something I can use next year in our first year as a 1:1 school?
