Wakelet & the SAMR Model
Dr. Ruben Puentedura’s SAMR model exemplifies the integration of technology into teaching. This model is an effort to prove more meaningful uses of technology in the classroom rather than using “tech for tech’s sake.” As you strive to incorporate online tools into your classroom, we encourage you to use this model as an analytic tool.
Here is an example of how Wakelet might fit within the SAMR model:
- Substitution: Students read a collection of articles on Wakelet instead of in print.
- Augmentation: Students curate multimodal collections of images, videos, articles, and more.
- Modification: Students curate information and resources about a specific topic on Wakelet and share it widely via social media for feedback. Students critically analyze content and research to create an archive for discussion.
- Redefinition: Students have access to real-time collaboration on multimodal content curation.
Far too often, technology is used as a direct substitute for other low-tech tools (e.g., pencil and paper). While substitution has some benefits (e.g., students develop their technology skills and knowledge), we encourage you to think about how you might use Wakelet to modify or redefine learning.
Calculate the number of Wakelets that pertain to a topic. Create a Wakelet with content that helps students learn, practice, and assess math skills. Design a wake for a math topic, process, or mathematician.
Curate research about a scientific topic (e.g., #climatechange). Learn how to conduct an experiment by gathering research and videos to follow. Ask local scientists to add resources to a shared class wake.
Create a wake for a character. Create a historical timeline wake for a book read in class.
Gather research on the Civil War. Curate a storyline of the events that occured on 9/11.
Online Class Community
Collaborate on a research project. Provoke conversation on the political actions changing history.
