Engaging Peppermint Paddy: How Compassion Connects Students to the Common Core and the World - CORElaborate

Engaging Peppermint Paddy: How Compassion Connects Students to the Common Core and the World - CORElaborate | college and career ready | Scoop.it
When I am lesson planning, I think of the Peanuts character Peppermint Patty. I visualize her struggling to focus while her teacher rambles on about some meaningless task that has no connection to her life. I can hear her teacher drone like a cacophonous trombone “wuh wah wah wah,” while Peppermint Patty dozes off in …

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, Today, 6:10 AM

Based on Michael Petrelli's concluding paragraphs, perhaps I am now more open to referring to the standards by the state name--if that makes people feel better. I have felt strongly about referring to the standards as what they are, but if the name is the issue for most citizens, then I can move:  "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" (Shakespeare).

What is Project 24

 

What is Project 24?
Why Is It So Important?

District leaders are under extreme pressure to raise standards for all students with fewer resources. The Project 24 framework and accompanying resources offer district and school leaders tangible assistance in systemic planning for the effective use of technology to improve student outcomes. The framework synthesizes research and best practice into a set of topics to be discussed and addressed by district and school teams. Technology is not the silver bullet and all purchases must be aligned to a vision for student learning to achieve the goal of “college and career readiness” for all students. Project 24 materials are organized around a powerful planning framework and seeks to be a one-stop shop for district-level planning tools, expert advice, creative ideas, and tangible suggestions from experienced education experts and nonprofit education membership organizations.

Using the Website
In an effort to support districts in digital learning implementation, the Project 24 Website is broken into the following sections:Start: You are here now - This section highlights the purpose, framework, and components of the Project 24 initiative.Learn: The heart of Project 24, this section categorizes resources including webinars and hangouts, blog posts, and suggested implementation strategies into the seven topics (gears) in the framework.Explore: Whether state and district leaders are wrestling with BYOD, Common Core, or Digital Citizenship, this section provides suggestions on how to tackle the initiative using the framework as a planning tool.Assess: This section focuses on the Project 24 self-assessment, how to assemble a team, and how districts can analyze report that is provided free after the assessment is completed.Collaborate: States and districts are encouraged to use this section to join the MOOC-ed, Coaching MOOC, and to learn about ways states and districts are implementing the Project 24 framework.Lead: Devoted to leadership, this section provides examples of leaders who are "walking the walk" through educator and district leadership spotlights as well as access to the Project 24 team of experts.About: This section provides links to the Alliance for Excellent Education, the Center for Digital Learning Policy, research and policy papers, as well as materials that districts can use to share Project 24 information with interested colleagues.
