Fantastic webinar. So much information!

I also enjoy the idea that the standards do not tell teachers how to teach, because in the end, we must teach the students we have presently differently than the ones that came before them. I love it when I reach the point where I am just a facilitator for solving problems. I really want my students at the center of learning. I enjoy the ''technology space." My driving question is what will my students need to succee in their future?

Love the common core instruction.

I thought it was very informative. The best part is that the common core is embedded instruction and is more a way of thinking about instruction than a lock-step process.

Nice, simple overview of who, what, why, where and when of the common core. Now, to find a more in-depth, meat-and-potatoes webinar.
