Google Meet & the SAMR Model 

Learning Activities


Host a Mystery Skype session using Google Meet. Connect your class with another class (ideally located in a different state or country) and engage your students in the fun challenge of trying to figure out where the other class is located.

Collaborative Class Projects

Students can use Google Meet to work on class projects outside of class time. They can brainstorm ideas, exchange files and share screen to work on a group project together. 

History & Cultures

The teacher can use Google Meet to connect with a tour guide to give a virtual tour of a target city or historical site.


In any subject, the teacher can invite an expert as a guest speaker to talk to students in class through Google Meet. For example, invite an author of a book, which students are currently reading, to join as a guest speaker to have a lively chat with students to discuss the book content and students can ask questions through Google Meet.
