If you need some great ideas on how to update your lesson plans to the Common Core, this is the book for you! “Key to Aligning Your K-5 Class With Common Core State Standards” is my favorite tool in my efforts to re-map and update my computer lab curriculum. Written by someone who has been in my shoes and knows what kinds of projects teach the students the skills and the concepts they need to use technology for authentic purposes. –Amazon customer

This is a very good idea resource for integrating technology. I would recommend it! It has some excellent ideas and some that not so excellent but it is a great resource for finding some good CCS integrated technology projects. –-Amazon Customer

Love it! Thanks. TPT customer

I own most of the SL series, as I am an IT Teacher in Bangkok, Thailand at an American International School. What I really like about this book in the series is how perfectly aligned to the new Common Core Standards all the lessons are. I have shared this with our elementary and middle school teachers, as we begin our journey toward moving over to the CCS in literacy and mathematics especially. The scope and sequence in all the SL books are great, but this book further breaks down lessons in to the skills and strands in each lesson, starting in Kindergarten. There is a wonderful variety of lessons, easy for the novice technology teacher to use. I look forward to learning more about the CCS and how technology and the NETS standards apply. Very helpful resource to make learning fun and meaningful, in addition to truly integrating in to the core subject area curriculum. I highly recommend this text if you are a seasoned Tech teacher, a novice, or just a classroom teacher whose goal is to improve tech literacy in the lessons you teach.  Amazon customer
