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' ability to research, solve problems, collaborate and publish. These Academies 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.
Join us in a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) mini-conference to explore a variety of technology tools to support student engagement in the Common Core State Standards, and enhance instruction in your classroom. The RIMS CTAP Summer Roadshow consists of two mini-conferences located at sites across Riverside and San Bernardino counties. These 2-day workshops feature a variety of sessions for beginning and intermediate proficiency technology using educators.
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.
Join schools and community groups across California throughout the month of May in guiding students and their families to make informed choices, and empower them to act responsibly, safely, and ethically online. Common Sense Media has developed a Digital Citizenship Month toolkit that includes lesson plans for the classroom or afterschool, suggested digital storytelling tools, plus handouts and workshop activities for families.
As the school year unfolds and your district works on the goals and objectives of your tech plans, consider how technology will be implemented and utilized to help students meet the new Common Core standards. CTAP is offering some insight through a series of free live webinars about Common Core for Administrators and Teachers and Copyright/Digital Citizenship over the next school year.
