I get a lot of questions from readers about what tech ed resources I use in my classroom so I’m taking a few days this summer to review them with you. Some are edited and/or written by members of the Ask a Tech Teacher crew. Others, by tech teachers who work with the same publisher I do. All of them, I’ve found well-suited to the task of scaling and differentiating tech skills for age groups, scaffolding learning year-to-year, taking into account the perspectives and norms of all stakeholders, with appropriate metrics to know learning is organic and granular.
Today: Common Core Bundle
In this bundle, you get 20 tech ed resources on how to use technology to achieve Common Core Standards–presented in a variety of ways including Lesson plans, webinars, and short but pithy articles. Included:
5 books (including 70 lesson plans)
7 Hall of Fame articles addressing Common Core topics
Who needs this
K-8 class teacher, K-8 tech teachers, tech coordinators, library media specialists, curriculum specialists
Classroom grade level teachers if your tech teacher doesn’t cover basic tech skills.
If you’re the tech teacher and have dedicated technology time each week, this shows how to use tech to support classroom inquiry while meeting Common Core standards. You get a general overview from the webinars and articles, then lesson plans to put it into action.
