Integrating Technology Into the Common Core






Technology has the power to take a mediocre lesson and make it jaw dropping.  To take an uninterested student and get them involved and excited.  Technology can change EVERYTHING.  

However, it is so important for us to keep the focus on the learning, on the engagement, on  the skills and the take away.  We need to only incorporate technology where it enhances the learning, when it breaks down barriers and takes learning to a new level.  We do not want to have the focus of any lesson to be the use of technology.  If you objective for the day is to "make a Prezi" you are sadly missing the boat.  We need to focus on the learning at hand and look at ways where the technology can  bring your teaching to life.

50 Resources for Implementing the Common Core for Teachers

Tools for Teaching- Great teaching.  Inspiring Classrooms.

Better Lessons- Common Core: National Education Association


The College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Writing

The Production and Distribution of Writing

K-5

6. Use technology, including the internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others

When I read this statement the tool that stands out (actually, it is more like standing on the roof top yelling its name!) is Google Apps for Education, Google Docs in particular.  Google Docs allows you to collaborate with up to 50 people at one time and share your document with up to 200 other collaborators.  When you share you can designate if you are giving editing rights, commenting rights, or just viewing rights.  This tool is in the cloud and is a free.  That means that as long as you have the internet, you are seeing the same thing as all of your classmates- as Google always gives you the latest version of the software.  It evens the playing field between your wealthiest student and your poorest student.  Google Docs keeps track of every single revision made on the documents- so you can look back at any time and see who contributed, what they wrote, and at what time.  You are also able to restore the document at any time.  AMAZING!  

With the integration of Google Hangouts, you can "hangout" with up to 9 different people and work on the same document from 9 different locations all while seeing their face and hearing their voices.  

Check out these links for more information on Google Apps for Education.  But keep in mind, it isn't the tool that we need to focus on, it is the learning, the collaboration and the empowerment that matters. 



The Lexile Framework for Reading-  Enter your Lexile measure, select your interests, and find books you'd like to read!

Level It Books- Scan the barcode of the book and you will be given the Lexile score among other information

iBooks- Great source of digital text, particularly books in the Gutenberg Project.  You are able to book mark, highlight, add notes, find specific words, change text size, have words read aloud and define words.
