A recent Education Week blog post discussed survey results that revealed teachers are aware of Common Core State Standards, but when asked how prepared the teachers were to implement the standards in their classroom there were mixed feelings.

Atomic Learning recently announced the launch of its Atomic TechCore solution, developed in response to these needs to address the technology components embedded in the Common Core State Standards.
Atomic TechCore consists of a set of customizable planning and collaborative network tools that assist administrators in identifying the professional development and technology needed for their district to be successful in meeting the technology requirements embedded within Common Core standards, and in communicating the resulting findings and implementation plans to those impacted within the district.
The Atomic TechCore solution includes:
- Planning Tools for School Leaders
- PD and Lesson Guides for Teachers
- Lesson Assignments for Students
