Throughout the course of this school year, Atomic Learning has been following several teachers to see how they are transitioning classroom lessons to implement the CCSS. Videos captured from these observations are part of the the ed tech training company's Atomic TechCore solution, a set of tools that assist school leaders in providing teachers the resources they need to address the technology components within the Common Core State Standards.

Catlin Tucker is one of those teachers working through the challenges of implementing the standards in her California English classroom. Here's a preview of the training Catlin has helped develop to assist her peers in implementing the CCSS in their lessons: http://youtu.be/A25IqcouUns

Atomic TechCore includes:

  • Teacher-created professional development videos documenting individuals’ CCSS journey.
  • Self-paced professional development workshops providing concrete, easy-to-understand techniques to effectively transform instruction.
  • Classroom-ready lessons to prepare students to meet the technology demands within CCSS.

Reducing the Costs of Implementing the Common Core State Standards

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.
