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!
