The new common core standards have introduced some key shifts in English, language arts, and literacy in social studies, science and technical subjects. Once those shifts have been identified, how can digital tools and web 2.0 resources be used to support those standards?

In this workshop, participants will learn about and engage in Classroom 2.0 strategies that will move students toward the Common Core standards. Participants will also have the opportunity to see what a Common Core classroom looks like and how specific web-based tools can help them prepare students for the 21st Century.

Workshop will include:

Overview of Common Core Standards
Examples of teachers' common core implementation strategies
Digital tools to support common core from Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB)

Target Audience: All K-12 Educators
