Are you looking for a quick and easy way to reference your standards? Check out this free state standards app…
Mastery Connect is the creator of the most popular Common Core Standards app (we talk about it a bit in the video above). That is a helpful app, and I still recommend it. However, not all states are adopting these standards, and many states are using a variation specific to their state. That's why I'm thrilled to share that Mastery Connect has launched state specific apps that cover the standards for each state individually. Click here to find your state standards app.
Just imagine how much time you'll save having your standards available 24/7 at your fingertips via this free mobile app. Doesn't get much better than that!
If you'd like some new ideas to help you plan your upcoming lessons with standards in mind, I recommend watching this online training video, Lesson Planning Made Simple. Join experienced tech trainer Jayme Linton as she introduces you to Lesson Plan Builder, a free web tool designed with simplicity in mind. Jayme shows how you can build a lesson to include virtually any type of content — websites, videos, text, games, and quizzes. She'll also cover how you can use the Lesson Plan Builder to track your students' progress as they work through lessons at their own pace, and provide targeted intervention based on real-time results.
