Common Core and Ed Tech

Common Core and Ed Tech is where innovative teachers go to find information about practical, classroom-tested ed tech resources to transform student learning. Key to Common Core (and all learning!) is the integration of skills that encourage collaboration, problem solving and creativity. Student technology use is essential in developing these skills. Keep up to date about new tools, and share your thoughts and practices with others each time you visit our site. Authored by Karen Larson, Academic Technology Specialist with the Santa Clara County Office of Education, and Gene Tognetti, vice principal of St. Leo the Great School. Both sit on the Board of Directors of Silicon Valley CUE (Computer Using Educators).
