Graphite Releases 'Common Core Explorer' Search Tool
Common Sense Media today released Common Core Explorer, a new search tool designed to help educators find the best digital-learning products that are aligned to Common Core State Standards.
Common Core Explorer provides teachers with a mechanism for browsing all the Common Core State Standards and for viewing which of the 1,200 ed tech products reviewed on Graphite are aligned to each. Filters help educators to navigate the standards and identify relevant products for their curricular needs.
Common Sense Media's educators evaluate each digital-learning product to determine which standards it best supports. In addition to finding products mapped to Common Core, teachers can read insights from a growing community of educators whose "Field Notes" describe how they have used a product with their students.
Common Core Explorer is the latest feature within Graphite, a free resource from Common Sense Media that allows educators to search for the best apps, games, websites and digital curricula for their classrooms. Graphite provides its 145,000 users with reviews and ratings based on a rubric applied by a panel of educators and editors.
