The California Technology Assistance Project of Region 10 (RIMS CTAP) is a public organization that provides educational technology support and professional development. RIMS CTAP has a staff of expert educators who train teachers and administrators in the use of educational technology to improve student learning.
State CTAP has created a website designed to assist educational professionals with the task of preparing teachers and students to excel in the Common Core environment, while developing the necessary technology integration skills for mastery of content and performing well on the Smarter Balanced Assessment.
Use of technology is required within the Common Core State Standards, and an integral part of students’ college and career readiness. In addition, students must be proficient with the use of technology tools to research, solve problems, collaborate and publish in order to be successful with the SBAC assessments.
These workshops will give teachers the opportunity to explore a variety of technology tools and resources, examine strategies that support student learning, and create products and lessons they can immediately implement with their students. Through each of the workshops in the series, teachers will discover how technology can support student research, analysis, evaluation, and synthesis.
RIMS CTAP is pleased to announce new cohorts of two Leading Edge Certifications: Online and Blended Teacher and Digital Educator. Both are scheduled to begin on June 9, 2014 and are fully online 8-week courses.
Participants in Leading Edge Certification should have good familiarity with web-based tools, experience with discussion boards, and knowledge of online tools and resources available in their subject area.

The CDE has announced that more than 8,000 California public schools and districts will share $188.4 million in Education Technology K-12 Voucher Program funds through the third distribution of the Education Technology K-12 Voucher Program.
