Tech Talk Roundtable 73 | SAMR for Adminstrators Part One

ChrisJamie and Michael discuss their personal learnings and articles of the week.

Articles of the Week


  1. As school systems are looking to increase the student usage of technology in the classroom, administrators may be presented with a precarious situation. The balance of funding effective professional development while retaining the appropriate resources to purchase the technology can be challenging. Even if the devices are purchased and available, some teachers can still feel overwhelmed with how to integrate the technology effectively. Creating a shared vision of tech integration among the staff is vital for cultivating a digital learning environment that permeates beyond the classroom.
  2. Have you ever experienced one of those days when you feel like you’re herding cats? You had plans to visit a few classrooms, catch up on some paperwork, and meet with a couple of teachers to discuss upcoming classroom observations. Unbeknownst to you, Murphy’s Law had prepared a wonderful day full of great activities for you.
  3. We have all experienced the frantic search for that one missing file or Word document we needed five minutes ago. I can remember having lesson plans on my home computer, work computer, flash drive, and even as attachments on emails from colleagues. Even after spending hours at the computer organizing my files into neat folders, the chaos would ensue within a few days of planning and creating content material.
  4. Some administrators are social media pioneers and do a wonderful job interacting with their local or even global communities on a daily basis. While there are many great success stories, there are those who still struggle with harnessing the power of social media.
