Guest Post by Cyndie Sebourn of Sascyn Publishing | Apps With Curriculum | Scoop.it

Apps With Curriculum is about curriculum, not just lesson plans. Curriculum embodies the subjects and planned learnings for an app; it is a summary of lessons. A lesson plan is just a detailed description of instruction for one class.

 

That is the difference. Apps With Curriculum is empowering educators with a course of study for each app that is cross curricular in subject areas and involves technology. For the public educators who need it, it also provides alignment to Common Core Standardsas well as Bloom’s Taxonomy.

 

21st Century Learning Skills focus on collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity.  Project-Based Learning is the curriculum that best meets this requirement and empowers students ...

Cyndie Sebourn's insight:

As educators, we often forget we are role models - not just to the PERFECT students, but also to the not so perfect students.

Read my blog: Educational Role Models

Many years ago, I learned what to do when I had a student that I dreaded to see coming to class each day; I visited the school counselor. This was where I received my best education; this was also where my heart was broken.
