Friday, September 14, 2012 Learn how to help all staff transition to the Common Core, Teaching Strategies + More
We delve deeper into the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) with with Ferdi Serim on October 1 & 2 in St. Louis, Missouri. This two-day workshop focuses on how schools can transition to the CCSS & integrate technology tools at the same time.
Participants can come both days or just one, and will explore how to use engaging projects to help learners develop 21st century skills by applying the Common Core to real-world challenges and how to use available school performance data to select the most appropriate & engaging projects. We will closely examine strategies for determining readiness entry points for staff, based on their prior experience with project based learning and comfort level with online learning, and how to use job-embedded online professional development to help all staff transition to the Common Core.
In addition, Serim will show you how to strategically align your efforts so that you incorporate the teaching strategies that have been found to be most effective into tasks explicitly designed to develop 21st century skills, within the context of the Common Core. Finally, Serim will introduce participants to an online interactive database and demonstrate how it can be used to bridge the gaps and silos that impede more effective and seamless collaborations between K12, institutes of higher education, employers and communities.
Serim is the Executive Director of the New Mexico Society for Technology in Education, an ISTE affiliate, the Learning Community Technologies Director at Quaglia Institute for Student Aspirations and owner of CLARD Consulting. The audience for this professional development is superintendents, curriculum coordinators, teachers, and administrators.

According to www.cilc.org, Independence Seaport Museum focuses on engaging visitors with the rich past, present and future of the Delaware and Schuylkill rivers by building on vibrant collections, historical archives and engaging programming. ISM focuses on trade, commerce, shipping, immigration, ship building, military, fishing, recreation, transportation, science and technology. This content provider has offered videoconferences since 2010.
The museum recently posted several program offerings that sound really interesting, including:
- African American Mariners at Sea
- WWI- The Forgotten War
- Real Pirates of Philadelphia
- The China Trade- Economics,Past and Present
- WWII-Submarines and Naval warfare
Their videoconferences range in cost from $125 per session to $145 per session. I’m looking forward to connecting some St. Louis area schools with these programs!
