Motivational Videos for Common Core Implementation Common Core State Standards Test Preparation The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an effort to ensure that all students in public schools in America acquire the skills and knowledge they need in order to be prepared to achieve success at college or in the workforce. The federal government is not responsible for this initiative; it was developed at the state level by government leaders and education professionals who were concerned about the lack of national standards for the education of children. As of this writing, 45 states have voluntarily adopted the standards, along with three territories and the District of Columbia. Before the initiative, each state set its own educational requirements, which led to a situation in which some states had much lower standards than others. Not only was this unfair to the students who were being held to the lower standards, it also made it very difficult for parents, colleges, and employers to gauge the value of a high school diploma, because requirements varied so greatly.

Ania Kozicka's Blog Digital Play In the University of Bristol’s Education Endowment Foundation‘s recent study on Neuroscience and Education, (Howard-Jones, 2014), there is an interesting section on Learning Games. Classroom practice and neuroscientific research The review ”considers the extent to which insights from the sciences of mind and brain influence, or are close to influencing classroom practice”, summarising “existing evidence about approaches and interventions that are based, or claim to be based, on neuroscience evidence.” The report categorises the approaches into 1) those which are likely to have a positive impact on attainment, 2) those which need further testing to determine the likely impact on attainment, and 3) those which do not seem to have a promising impact on attainment. Further research required What is known about Learning Games Popular games stimulate the brain’s reward systemThe brain’s reward response can positively influence the rate we learn
For Parents Common Core WSSU Homepage Lessons Aligned to the Common Core By Cameron Pipkin This is a nice little Common Core resource I’m surprised I’ve never come across until now. It’s called LearnZillion, and it began as an experiment at a Washington DC public charter school. Essentially, if I read their website correctly, LearnZillion does what my company has been doing for a couple of decades: film teachers demonstrating best practices in the classroom and put lessons on video. LearnZiollion has managed to collect homemade videos of lessons from teachers all over the country. And now, it appears, the site is turning its focus to Common Core Standards lessons. Critiques: a good number of the videos are a bit hard to follow, and their offerings are limited. Let me know what you think.
