Tech Tuesday – Social Studies Content-Area Tech Integration

This entry is part 13 of 20 in the series Tech Tuesday 1516

How do you teach culture and history “above the line”? In this session, learn how to move toward transformational learning tasks (modification, redefinition on SAMR) in the social studies classroom.


  • As a conversation starter, we reviewed this SAMR Introduction video from Common Sense Media
  • Using our idea walls, sketch out what a technology infused lesson looked like this past week.Globe and Mouse
  • In a gallery walk, we will then identify what level on the SAMR model those activities fall.  Let’s also discuss how the tools mentioned can be used to move up the SAMR model to new learning experiences that did not exist without our technology.
  • Later, I will post an ICYMI that recaps some of the suggestions made in-session and then what other suggestions I might have.
