ISTE Launches Project ReimaginED To Align Learning Activities to Common Core
The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) has launched Project ReimaginED, a social learning community that aims to redesign learning activities for alignment with the Common Core State Standards and the ISTE Standards for Students.
Open to K-12 teachers and technology coaches, the community will ask teams of educators to submit educational artifacts aligned to the standards for review by network leaders.
Once vetted, the artifacts will be curated and published, "creating a valuable resource library for educators around the country," according to a news release. "Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions, post comments, share works-in-progress and get feedback from community members on educational artifacts that they contributed. In addition, they can continue to build their knowledge of the Common Core and ISTE Standards by attending online or events or through reading the Project ReimaginED blog."
Developed in partnership with the National Center for Literacy Education and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the project will run through December 2015.
