Adventures in Innovation: Input Needed for Digital Resources

One of my goals for the month of June was to build the first self-assessment form for BoostEDU.  The first self-assessment form will focus on SAMR and, over the next year, I intend to create more self-assessments aligned to 4 C’s, ISTE Standards, and TPACK.  The purpose of these self-assessments is to support teachers in purposefully integrating technology by transforming their current lessons into 21st-century lessons.  Through this survey, educators will receive real-time feedback on their technology integration and will be able to select suggestions and technology tools to improve their lessons.  As we know, each teacher is in a different place when it comes to technology integration.  Through the BoostEDU process, teachers will receive personalized feedback and support on transforming their lessons.

Currently, the SAMR self-assessment is in the final stages of development.  Although I am not going to share this self-assessment until the BoostEDU release date, I am excited to say that it has turned out better than I had imagined.  However, I do need some assistance from anyone that would be willing to help.  Part of the self-assessment consists of suggestions for improvement and technology tools to “boost” teacher lessons.  Even though I have a lot of suggestions and tech tools built into the self-assessment, I would like to receive some input from educators that are outside of my grade level, subject area, site, and district.  With your help, I will be able to create more suggestions and offer more ideas for technology tools that will support teachers.

If you are willing to help, please respond to the survey below:

In addition to this, if you are interested in being a beta tester for BoostEDU, please email me at [email protected] and I will add you to the interest list.

Thank you for your help!

  1. Hi megan, i started replying to you and then realised that i had something better that you might not know about. The nsw dept of education in sydney australia created this cool app to help their teachers choose the right software/app/tool for the task they wanted. it isnt mapped to samr like your project – although that sounds amazing and i might nick (borrow without asking) it once you’ve shared it but it does catalouge many tools and you might not know all fo them. hope this helps!


    1. Thank you for sharing! This is a great set of resources for tech tools!

      The project will be published in the next few months, so keep an eye out for updates!
