Implementing the Common Core State Standards: The Role of the School Leader Action Brief | Achieve

Implementing the Common Core State Standards: The Role of the School Leader Action Brief | Achieve | Technology for School Administrators | Scoop.it

These Action Briefs for school leaders are a starting point, designed to increase awareness of the standards, create a sense of urgency around their implementation, and provide these stakeholders — who are faced with dramatically increased expectations in the context of fewer resources — with a deeper understanding of the standards and their role in implementing the standards. Achieve, in partnership with College Summit, the National Association of Secondary School Principals, and the National Association of Elementary School Principals, released this with support from MetLife Foundation.

The Many Benefits of Using iBooks in Education - Emerging EdTech

The Many Benefits of Using iBooks in Education - Emerging EdTech | Technology for School Administrators | Scoop.it

"Apple’s electronic books are an excellent compliment to their tablets and to the needs of education.

 

Even before the computer revolution, the significant materials demands for teaching and learning were a bone of contention. For school administrations, textbooks and supplementary materials are a giant money pit; for teachers, generating endless handouts is a time-sink, and for students, organizing — and carrying — reams of xeroxed sheets and monumental textbooks is cumbersome, to say the least."

The Innovative Principal - Using iPads for classroom Observations

The Innovative Principal - Using iPads for classroom Observations | Technology for School Administrators | Scoop.it

"Many principals are on the lookout for a perfect observation “tool” or “app” that will instantly tell them what to look for during a classroom observation. The real task is for the evaluator to reflect and be knowledgable about what they need to look for and THEN find a tool that can be customized to fit their needs and make their work easier. With the help of an iPad, I believe I have found just the tool."
