New Features in the SAM Studio Coding Platform

SAM Studio is SAM Labs K-8 coding platform where educators easily create, save, share and differentiate lessons. It allows for ease in facilitating student exploration, teaching foundational concepts, applying real-world challenges, and assessing student learning.

Classroom management and differentiation is a breeze in SAM Studio. Educators can create as many class sections and subgroups as needed for their students, including intervention and acceleration groups.

We are excited to announce these new features in SAM Studio.

Content Hub

With our K-8 NGSS and CSTA aligned curriculum, teachers have an entire Content Hub at their fingertips, including lessons on how to get started with their students.

Lessons are easy to filter to access exactly what is needed. Lessons are filtered by grade, subject, standards, location in the instructional cycle, time estimate, and more.
