A recent article in Education Week asks the question “How Much Will the Common Core Cost?” The article highlights money-saving ways to implement the Common Core State Standards, the largest implementation savings are linked to using technology in three areas: curriculum materials, tests, and professional development. At Atomic Learning, we didn’t design Atomic TechCore to save districts money on implementation costs; we designed a product that would allow educators and administrators to collaborate to determine the best way to incorporate the new Mathematics and English Language Arts standards into curriculum. This meant encompassing professional development, lesson planning, and student delivery, in addition to rubrics to gauge learning metrics all in one tool. Learn more.

According to a recent survey by the Learning Education by Advancing Digital Commission, both teachers and parents want a greater emphasis on technology in the classroom. Additionally, both groups see technology will grow to be more important in the next ten years. What does more technology in the classroom look like?
