Why do we need tokens to access SAM Studio?

We are consolidating the user experience for SAM Space and SAM Blockly into one web-based platform called SAM Studio. We are also building out the functionality and resources within SAM Studio. To help provide the best experience for you and your students, these future features will require us to differentiate between different types of users using tokens. It is important to note that we do not collect any personal identifiable information about students. 

By registering for tokens now, we are trying to minimize your disruption to your current SAM Labs experience. 

Tokens will give you access to the following features now:

  • All Blocks and Behaviors within SAM Space and SAM Blockly
  • Ability to saving projects in Google Drive
  • Sharing Projects
To register for tokens, follow the instructions here: Register for Tokens

Existing customers will be given free access to our SAM Studio 'School Basic' plan, where they will have access to SAM Space and SAM Blockly. For additional 'pro' features, customers have the opportunity to upgrade to a Teacher Pro Plan plan or School Pro Plan

Interested users will be granted a temporary or trial membership but will ultimately need to purchase a subscription plan to have continual access to extended features and benefits. 

If you do not register for tokens, there will still be a free platform to explore called ‘SAM Studio Lite.’  This version has limited blocks and behaviors available within SAM Blockly. We will later extend this to include a 'Lite' version of SAM Space. 


The different plans and features are listed below:
