The History Of Online Education | Edudemic

Many of us remember back when online learning wasn’t yet a ‘thing’. Back when classes happened almost exclusively in a classroom, and the internet was something we snuck downstairs to use when our parents were asleep (if the dial-up modem didn’t wake them up).

Library Of Congress Unveils Massive Common Core Resource Center | Edudemic

Library Of Congress Unveils Massive Common Core Resource Center | Edudemic | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) is here and teachers are trying to figure out how to best integrate it into their tried-and-true lessons. They’re struggling to integrate technology to best augment CCSS. They are in desperate need of classroom materials that they can trust.

Like a superhero, the U.S. Library of Congress has just swooped in and unveiled an enormous new (and free!) resource that’s all about the Common Core. It’s located at http://www.loc.gov/teachers and worth checking out.

Common Core Resources
You can now do a ‘Search By Standards‘ query which lets you do exactly that. The software has just seen a big update too. Select your state, grade level, and subject for a list of Library of Congress teaching materials aligned to those standards. Or, once you’ve found a lesson plan or primary source set that you’d like to use, one click will show you which of your standards that particular item meets.
