The Tech Ladies were on the road again to gather information and resources for our teachers. This time we were off to Port Allen High School to attend the Region II LACUE Technology Slam. Thank you Dr. Tammy Seneca and the West Baton Rouge Parish schools for a very informative day. Dr. Seneca’s session on Common Core and Technology really helped us understand technology’s role in the common core classroom. We saw that for teachers to properly assess the speaking and learning components of their curriculum they will need to use technology.
We also realized that planning true common core lessons involves more time and work on the front end but the payback is less work in the classroom for the teacher and more work for the students. Fortunately teachers can find more and more lessons on-line created and aligned to Common Core. West Baton Rouge is compiling these lessons and opening access to everyone. There are only a few lessons for each grade level now but more will be added periodically. These lessons like the one pictured here include Promethean flipcharts and PowerPoint slides. Some also have links to BrainPop or Discovery Education videos. Just go to the links below for the different grade levels and enter as a Guest.
