Free iOS App Today - The Common Core Navigator for Mathematics

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/common-core-navigator-for/id576051375?mt=8

Description

Achieving our goals is a process, a journey. Knowing the destination is important, but we also need to plan how to get there. The Common Core State Standards gives us a lot of ground to cover. The purpose of this app is to help educators navigate through the standards to select the appropriate pathways that will lead your students to reach their learning goals.

The Navigator organizes the Common Core Standards into topical, sequential “learning pathways.” Six general topics and over 50 subtopics were hand-selected and placed in developmental order. In some cases, the standards were further divided and rephrased to make them more measurable and concise. Each learning pathway reveals related standards from across domains and grade levels and connects to prerequisite skills and future learning.

This app will help teachers in regular and special education develop differentiated learning objectives and standards-based IEPs and lesson plans. Teachers can also use the Navigator with their students to show how how their learning goals connect with these nation-wide standards.

Skype is sending Santa to the classroom with a $10k technology makeover

Skype is rewarding innovative teachers this holiday season with a $10k technology makeover delivered by the big man in red via Skype.

We are very proud that in a time of education cutbacks Skype’s technology is enabling educators to still bring out of the classroom learning experiences to students – all without leaving their desks.  From explorer Mark Wood connecting classrooms in Nepal and Tsunami-damaged Japan for an environmental discussion to students getting a chance to learn from NASA and even surprise video calls from NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal, Skype in the classroom empowers teachers to bring truly remarkable experiences to their schools.

We want to reward this innovation so today we’re launching Santa in the Classroom, a contest providing teachers with a chance to win $10,000 in technology products from the Microsoft Store and a Skype call with Santa Claus this holiday season!

Please encourage educators to visit the Skype blog for more details or the Skype in the classroom website to enter!  If you would like learn more about how Skype in the classroom is enabling unique and innovative learning experiences for students – for free – please give me a call at 646-747-3596 or email me at dcothran@kaplowpr.com.

Best,
Dara
