California groups publish how-to guide for districts on Common Core | EdSource Today

California groups publish how-to guide for districts on Common Core | EdSource Today | K-12 Web Resources | Scoop.it

by John Fensterwald

 

"California school districts having trouble getting their arms around the elephant known as Common Core now have a 60-page guide to help them focus.

 

"The first edition of the Leadership Planning Guide to implement the Common Core standards and assessments was published last week by the California County Superintendents Educational Services Association with help from other organizations representing the teachers, school boards, school administrators, charter schools and parents.

 

“The Planning Guide emphasizes a team approach to Common Core implementation and features quick links to a wealth of resources from California and across the nation,” said David Gordon, superintendent of schools for the Sacramento County Office of Education, which took a leading role in the publication. “It’s a quick read and should be helpful to districts well along the road to implementation as well as those just starting out.”

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet | K-12 Web Resources | Scoop.it

Death by PowerPoint is a popular term. It’s unfair that PowerPoint gets the stick as there are more than a few presentation tools around. As anyone who has taken the pains to make a memorable PowerPoint presentation will tell you – the secret of the steak is in the sizzle. The sizzle also comes and stops at creativity. If you have creativity by your side, you can use PowerPoint as your canvas.

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations 

Karen Ford's curator insight, November 4, 2013 12:53 PM

I think "death by PowerPoint" is used so often because so many users have not "taken the pains to make a memorable..." presentation and the concept of creativity might not have even been considered. Not totally sure what the answer is, but I do believe that if more individuals could have their eyes opened to the potential that PowerPoint has, we might be able to get passed the "death" issue. That means we have to get the great ideas to the teachers and  their students... not just telling them, but perhaps showing them...

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, November 5, 2013 3:08 PM

PPT is here to stay. We should learn all of its features and be imaginative in how we use it.
