Center for Digital Education & Converge: research in education technology for K-12 and higher education



Webinar: Next-Generation Learning: Preparing for the Common Core Online Assessments

November 26, 2013 - November 26, 2013
11 AM PST | 2:00 PM EST

Duration: 60 minutes

K–12 districts are gearing up for a big transition to digital curriculum. The motivation for this may lie with new common core state standards and the online assessments that are coming soon. The shift from paper and pencil assessments to online will require some BIG changes in how schools do business. However, to effectively establish and sustain readiness for this movement, leaders must consider the people and processes side by side with district policy and technology.

Please join the Center for Digital Education and Whittier Union High School District to discuss challenges and how to support student learning, as well as establish district and school readiness. Learn how to help teachers and administrators determine the necessary curriculum, technology, processes, and infrastructure to enhance success in our schools.

Key considerations we will cover during this live, interactive webinar will include:
•    Readiness to deliver online assessments, whether driven by Common Core Standards or other state mandates
•    Professional development to ready educators for digitally enabled curriculum
•    Technology readiness to ensure a systemic, supportable and sustainable blended learning environment
