Hosted by Andrea Gardner, Instructional Technology Specialist at Westford Public School in Westford, MA.

According to their mission statement, the Common Core State Standards “provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.”

During this Webinar, we will:

•Understand how technology is part of the Common Core Standards
•Identify specific examples of where technology is located within the CCSS
•Share what that looks like through Glogster EDU eyes
•Review and discuss technology, multimedia and the 4Cs
•Present possible options for moving forward with integrating technology into the classroom
