Enter the SAMR model. This is a technology adoption/integration model that is being organically shared across the district. It is a model that recognizes technology adoption is a growth process, that helps educators pinpoint where they generally are on the SAMR continuum, that provides a vision of what growth can look like, and can even be used to individually plan and set stretch goals. As schools demonstrate readiness for Waukesha One and are selected, the SAMR model will be introduced as a critical component for understanding readiness and growth.
With that said, North's Kristin Kamenar has written a wonderful overview of the SAMR model with a reflective analysis of each level or stage of SAMR. I will allow her words and perspective to inform your further on SAMR. Spot on, Kristin!
