Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) May 08, 2012
The past few months there have seen some major changes in schools—shifts in the education that will shape the landscape of learning for decades to come. Perhaps the most dramatic of these changes has been the initial implementation and training on the Common Core Standards, a set of education benchmarks adopted in the majority of states in the U.S.
In order to provide educators with all of the guidance and support that they will need as they implement the Common Core Standards, PD developer School Improvement Network has created Common Core 360, an online Common Core training platform featuring the largest suite of interactive Common Core training tools in the world, including over 60 videos featuring real teachers in real classrooms, and training from top experts on the Core.
In its second year only, the platform has already played a pivotal role in Common Core training in districts all over the country. And now, as of May 2012, School Improvement Network has announced the release of 70 new videos into Common Core 360 by September. The first of these videos, a program outlining Common Core implementation at the Indian River School District in Delaware, takes viewers inside district meetings, PLCs, and the classroom itself to help show educators how to effectively implement the Common Core.
To find out how to implement the Common Core Standards in your classroom, sign up for a free 30-day trial of Common Core 360.
To learn more about the Standards, and how to crosswalk current standards and curriculum into the Common Core, be sure to attend the School Improvement Innovation Summit, and the Common Core Institute, both held this summer in Salt Lake City, UT.
