Common Core Standards and Technology
Transcript of Common Core Standards and Technology
A Shift in Education
Our books are no longer at the appropriate level.
We neeed new material to supplement.
Daily access to scholarly, peer-reviewed journals is now required.
New Legal Changes Force ELA classes to be drastically different in the fall of 2012
Common Core changes types of writing, reading, in-class work, speaking, and grammar.
RISE encourages increased student engagement, differentiated lessons, advanced rigor, and constant feedback.
21st Century Skills encourage independent learners, digital citizens, and diverse literacy.
These are our goals and mandates for next year, and this is how we hope to achieve them with increased techonology.
Changes in Literature Instruction
Common Core, 21st Century and RISE
Common Core implimentation requires ELA classes to transition from narrative writing to argumentative writing
80% Persausive/Expository versus Narrative
Students need access to resources to support their claims
Close reading strategies require continual access to scholarly material that is only available online
#7-Writing Focus Shifts
Students are responsible for their own learning
Less teacher driven instruction so students will be able to use their access to information to find answers
#3: Switch to Inquiry Based Instruction
Common Core, RISE, and 21st Century
To track progress as often as we need to we need daily technology access. The following sites will help us achieve our goals:
-monitors each student for each common core standard
Information is shared instantly and teacher is readily available for feedback
-Some students can access Google Docs from their cell phones, which gives them
quicker access when they are on the go or not near a computer outside of school
#6 Formative Assessment Is Tracked and Readily Available
Change #1: Raised Lexile Range for Each Grade
Apps accessed on laptops can be viewed easily on phones and tablets...students can easily have access to work. Therefore, by increasing the technology in our rooms our classroom never ends. Students have same access everywhere they go.
This serves both the teacher and the student:
Teachers (again) have more formative assessment available all the time to get data, make changes, and create interventions.
Students will be able to access the information necessary to create sound arguments
21st Century and RISE
Students will be actively engaged in their own learning and take ownership over their learning
-Familiarity with technology will help engage
students in their own learning
Engaging Struggling Students
-Using technology will allow students to work more
interactively with the assignments.
-Struggling students can share assignments with
peers/teachers and get real-time feedback rather
than having to wait for the feedback at a later time
#8-Student Centered Work
RISE and 21st Century
ELA teachers are now being asked to get students College and Career Ready. One main skill is learning to work together.
Students can share documents through Google Docs between classes and within classes
Student accountability can actually be tracked by the students
-With group work, students can check revision
history and see what other group members have
Common Core, RISE, and 21st Century
Students will not only get feedback from teachers but also from other students
-Utilize Google Docs
*Access to teacher notes and classroom
Students will be able to communicate with people throughout the world
-School-to-school peer feedback
With common core standards, there is a shift from teacher-centered lessons to student-centered lessons.
21st Century and Common Core
New standards are moving everything up into new levels of difficulty. Constant online access with give us the ability to raise our standards easily.
Rigor is NOT a Four Letter-Word
by Barbara R. Blackburn
1. Create an environment that is conducive to growth
2. Focus on high expectations
3. Support students so they can learn at higher levels
4. Allow each student to demonstrate learning
Common Core and RISE
2. Project Gutenberg
3. The Open Library
4. Read Print
Sites Providing Free Books
There's an App for That!
Handouts & Worksheets
Students have access to materials when needed and teachers do have to schedule specials days for skills students should be doing daily.
A Library at Their Fingertips
In class research is a great tool.
Suppose today's class in on sleep deprivation. The instructor could say, "Okay, students X, I want you to find who holds the record for the most consecutive hours without sleep." Student Y, find me five symptoms of sleep deprivation." Within five minutes, the instructor and the class would have the answers...Students can go to the library without leaving the classroom...full-length texts can be referenced or printed out right in the classroom. This ability provides a great tool for in-class research-an instructor can teach and supervise students as they learn how to conduct academic search and scholarly research.

Old Bloom's Taxonomy
New Bloom's Taxonomy
Bloom et al. discussed at length their decision to apply an Aristotelian categorization method in their taxonomy. The choice was significant, because an Aristotelian method creates distinct, bounded categories ordered by complexity without the hierarchical assumption that higher-level categories always entail instantiation of those lower in the taxonomy (e.g., when evaluating, it is not always necessary to first apply and synthesize). Moreover, Aristotelian categorization emphasizes that these groupings are closely related and difficult to tease apart. . . . however, the division of the taxonomy of educational objectives into classes representing lower order ... and higher order thinking ... has prevailed in research.
Alexander, P.A., et al. (2011). Higher-order thinking and knowledge: Domain-general and domain-specific trends and future directions. In G. Schraw & D. R. Robinson (Eds.), Assessment of higher order thinking skills (pp. 49-50). Charlotte, NC: Information Age Publishing.

Technology allows teachers to increase rigor in their classrooms.
Transitioning from "traditional"
teaching to 21st century teaching
21st Century Skills
Students must be able to electronically exchange information and participate in digital societies.
21st Century Teaching Mandates:
1. Students learn about other culturals via technology.
2. Students practice responsible use of technology.
3. Students develop lifelong learning, collaboration, and productivity via the web.
Delineate and evaluate the argument that Thomas Paine makes in Common Sense. Assess the reasoning present in his analysis, including the premises and purposes of his essay.
Analyze how Abraham Lincoln in his "Second Inaugural Address" examines the ideas that led to the Civil War, paying particular attention to the order in which the points are made, how Lincoln introduces, and develops his points and the connections that are drawn among them.
Learning by Doing
CRITICAL THINKING AND PROBLEM SOLVING
AGILITY AND ADAPTABILITY
INITIATIVE AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP
EFFECTIVE ORAL/WRITTEN COMMUNICATION
ACCESSING AND ANALYZING INFORMATION
CURIOSITY AND IMAGINATION
Our textbooks do not follow this mandate. Therefore, we need increased access to nonfiction material and "literary nonfiction" for ELA classes in the fall of 2012.
This access needs to be DAILY to change our instruction dramatically.
Luckily, many sources are free online.
#2: Nonfiction is now 70% of literary instruction.
All changes are based on Common Core, RISE, and 21st century skills (in that order).
Today we will walk you through the changes we plan to make for the fall of 2012.
Flip N Turn
Websites that allow for increased Inquiry:
To comply with new Indiana Teacher Evaluations, in the fall of 2012 we must follow the mastery style of learning.
So next year we will continue (and improve) our work with benchmark tests, data analysis, grouping, and individual lessons. Our goal is to achieve this type of monitoring daily. This is of course very time consuming!
To do this we will need the students complete more of their work online because online tools grade for us and split students accordingly.
#4: Differentiated Instruction Becomes the Norm
Tools for Differentiation
With online access students can fully take over their learning.
Now students can "share" their plans with teacher, team members, or students across the globe. Coordinating how to work on projects or assignments (and planning time, order, importance, etc.) becomes the students' job.
Online Management Tools
global collaboration on research projects, inquiry assignments, and project based learning ideas
Example: online "trips" to Scotland for Macbeth
Students can also learn about other communities and create their own excursions

A Refresher-from Dr. Tony Wagner and Partnership for 21st Century Skills
All students are now required have project based, research based learning.
