New School Technology – Google Docs and The Common Core | Metawriting |

We have used Google Apps for Education in our district for nearly three years. Yet it has only been in the last year that we have seen incredible jump in usage. One of the major reasons for this change has been the introduction and implementation of the Common Core Standards. While I do not intend to explore the efficacy or impact of the Common Core on this site, it is no doubt a pervasive force in education and one that teachers are expected to address. With the emphasis on evidence-based claims, research, collaboration, and natural integrated technology, Google docs has proven to be an ideal tool for teachers looking to create new lessons and activities to meet the new standards.
