Week 4 Prompt - Web 2.0 Tools and the SAMR Model

Your initial post for Week 4 will revolve around Web 2.0 tools and potentially spur ideas for your project.  In the comment phase of this round of reflective blogging, we will throw in some empirical research for discussion.

There is a model of technology integration called the SAMR model.  Here is a link to one description (https://sites.google.com/a/msad60.org/technology-is-learning/samr-model) of this model.  If you find this to be insufficient, a simple Google search will provide more resources.

However, your post this week will simply be a detailed response to this question:  What could you do in your class (or workplace) with a (i.e., any) Web 2.0 tool that would equate to each of the four levels of the SAMR Model?  That is, how could you use a Web 2.0 tool as a Substitute for current lesson, to Augment a lesson, and so on.

To clarify:

  • I want one example of each (S, A, M, and R) from your current or future work situation.
  • Please clearly state your situation at the beginning (e.g., I teach 10th grade social studies) of your post.
  • No, you don't have to use the same tool for each example.
  • No, you don't have to use the same lesson for each example.

Please have your initial post completed by 11:55 pm on Sunday, February 8th.
