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.
The 9th Annual EdTech Classroom Conference will be held at California State University, San Bernardino College of Education on Saturday, November 2, 2013. The theme of this year’s free conference is Digital Citizenship and Augmented Reality.
RIMS CTAP and the iQUEST Project at California State University San Marcos invite 7th and 8th grade science teachers to a free all-day workshop to learn about exemplary technology infused science lessons created and field tested by 7th and 8th grade science teachers from the iQUEST Project.
