BoostEDU: 4 C’s Self Assessment Launching May 6!

It has been far too long since I have shared updates on my Google Innovator Project, BoostEDU.

BoostEDU is a program that supports teachers in transforming their traditional lessons into 21st-century lessons through an inquiry-based self-assessment and guided lesson design process. Currently, the program hosts a SAMR self-assessment, as well as a guided lesson design template to guide teachers in understanding the depth of technology use in their classroom.

While I haven’t shared much recently, I am excited to say that BoostEDU is regularly used by educators around the country. On a daily basis, educators are using the BoostEDU self-assessment to identify their depth of technology use and to find ways to improve their instructional practice. There are still SO many ways that I want to continue to improve this program but it is exciting to see how it has developed over the last two years.

Even more exciting, I am happy to announce that on May 6th, 2019 the 4 C’s Self-Assessment will be launched!

To be able to successfully launch this self-assessment, I am looking for a little bit of help from the amazing educators that follow this blog. If you are interested in helping with this launch, here are two ways in which you can support the new self-assessment:

1.) Submit ideas to the BoostEDU: 4 C’s Survey.

While I have many of my own ideas on how to bring the 4 C’s into the classroom, I need ideas from educators from different content areas, experience, demographics, etc. Please consider filling out this short survey to share how you promote the 4 C’s in your classroom or school!

2.) Sign up to a be a BoostEDU: Beta Tester.

In April, I plan on having the majority of the self-assessment built and I will be looking for educators who are willing to test out this assessment and give feedback. Fill out the short form above to sign up!

I cannot express how excited I am for this upcoming launch for BoostEDU – I hope you will join me on this journey! 🙂
