Common Core and Technology

With Common Core assessments already underway (on a preview basis–so educators can see what’s in store), there’s a lot of chatter about whether students truly have the technology skills required to accomplish what Common Core is asking:keyboarding copy

  • keyboarding with accuracy and easy
  • online research
  • using online tools quickly and efficiently to produce documents, publish learning, interact/collaborate, evaluate information presented in various formats

These revolve around using technology (devices, equipment, skills) to achieve the fundamentals of what Common Core considers an educated student–

  • •Demonstrate independence.
  • •Build strong content knowledge.
  • •Respond to the varying demands of audience, task, purpose, and discipline.
  • •Comprehend as well as critique.
  • •Value evidence.
  • •Use technology and digital media strategically and capably.
  • •Come to understand other perspectives and cultures.

We will be preparing a series of ebooks to help you accomplish this. What would you like to see?
