Common Core State Standards (CCSS)

A Winning Formula: Technology + Shared Standards = Increased Learning Opportunities

Lindsay Tepe at EdCentral has a great piece on the U.S. Department of Education's efforts to encourage districts to increase learning opportunities through higher standards and the strategic use of technology, specifically open education resources (OER).
Further, with the adoption of the Common Core State Standards across the majority of states, more and more high quality learning materials students and teachers can access are aligned to these shared academic standards. One such resource that the district has leveraged is EngageNY, an open curriculum for English language arts and mathematics, developed through public investment by the New York State Education Department. Since both Illinois and New York have adopted the Common Core for both ELA and math, New York state’s investment has been Williamsfield’s gain as well.
