If you haven’t yet heard about the Common Core State Standards for education, don’t worry. You will.
Forty-five states have already adoptedthese learning guidelines for English/Language Arts and Mathematics in grades K-12. This means that teachers in most states are or will be aligning their curriculum to these educational standards.
While it’s exciting to know that kids all across the country, regardless of geographical location, will be exposed to the same expectations and will be developing the same skills, these new standards present challenges for classrooms and opportunities for those of us who are creating digital content for kids.
