CUE Learning Tours Present
Common Core Learning Tour
Standards aren’t boring anymore! Technology and Common Core Standards work seamlessly together and CUE is here to support your journey in learning about the Standards and the role that technology plays in them. Whether you are a Common Core newbie or a pro, the CUE Learning Tour will help you in your journey as we get to the CORE of educational technology and explore how it will enhance your curriculum and instruction. This isn’t just about the tools; we will show you how to integrate technology and as a result, increase collaboration and curricular rigor just like the new standards expect. And more than that, we’re going to have fun learning it along the way!
Be sure to bring your laptop to take part in the hands on learning. Lunch and light breakfast will be provided.
This will be a highly-participatory workshop. This is not the traditional “sit & get” event, so come ready to dive right into the discussions, help create the agenda, and share your stories.
Choose from two locations; Hosted by Santa Cruz County Office of Education on September 28 and Orange County Department of Education on September 29. Register today at $99* these will workshops will sell out (*$99 for CUE members - $139 includes membership)
