Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) November 14, 2012
School Improvement Network’s Common Core 360 was named among the top educational technology products by a panel of more than 30 educators for Tech & Learning magazine. The panel tested over 160 entries, and named Common Core 360 among the most high-quality, high-impact resources available.
“The new Common Core State Standards are key to helping our students leave high school prepared for college and career,” said School Improvement Network CEO and President Chet Linton. “Common Core 360 is everything educators need to understand the Standards, implement them with fidelity and help students make meaningful gains with them.”
School Improvement Network’s Common Core 360 is a library of resources to move educators from a basic understanding of the Common Core Standards to mastery level implementation. Among other tools, Common Core 360 features an ever-growing library of nearly 300 training videos, including real, in-class examples of teachers using the Common Core Standards and accompanying downloadable lesson plans.
“As schools continue to have to do more with less, buying the right solution for your district needs is more important than ever,” said Kevin Hogan, editorial director for NewBay Media’s Tech & Learning Group in a press release about Common Core 360 and the other award winners. “Tech & Learning is proud to present these recommended products that have been put to the test by our experienced educational team of judges.”
Judges’ comments and descriptions about what they loved in Common Core 360 will be available in the December 2012 issue of Tech & Learning.
