Common Core and Technology
For example: In English language arts, the standards call for students to use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing, as well as to interact and collaborate with others which includes writing blog posts and commenting on blogs. Kids should also be able to evaluate information presented in different media and formats, according to the standards. Along with evaluating information, they should be able to produce presentations with digital media, which includes Web-based tools. (like Prezi)
