The movement to develop the CCSS was initiated by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers with the aim of creating a set of common learning expectations for mathematics and for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects. As of January 2013, 46 states, the District of Columbia and two territories have adopted the CCSS. The Hawaii Department of Education began its implementation of the CCSS in SY 2012-2013 with grades K-2 and 11-12, and transitioning to full implementation in all grade levels in SY 2013-2014.

With the advance of technology and the educational paradigmatic shift that ensued , critical thinking skills have occupied a central part in the literature of teaching and learning pedagogy, not that these skills were not important before but I would say they came to the foreground now more than in any time before. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has already covered this topic in some previous posts and you can check the following links to learn more about Critical thinking. For today, I am sharing with you a great graphic that illustrates some elements of critical thinking process. Have a look and as always share with us you feedback. Enjoy. Create a New Rubric. The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures. I’ve compiled several “The Best…” lists that sites where you can learn about the geography, data, languages, and holidays of different countries around the world.

Those resources are important, but I think it’s like learning the words, but not the music, of a song.

You might also be interested in The Best Travel Photographs Of The Year. Here are my choices for The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures (and are accessible to English Language Learners): Culture Crossing is a unique resource for information about different countries.
