How do the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)  affect your business in the education innovation sector? Michael Campbell, President, Forward Thinking EDU, discusses the CCSS, and why these standards matter to your product marketing strategy.

The CCSS were developed by leaders from the US National Governors Association and the US Council of Chief State School Officers, and have been adopted by most states in the US. These new standards provide teachers and parents with a consistent, clear understanding of what K-12 students are expected to learn. Under the CCSS, educational materials delve deeper into fewer topics, so students master the content, rather than memorizing, and learn hands-on, real-world skills.

The new standards create a nationwide framework for educators across the US. In this session, originally presented February 18, 2014,  Michael addresses the following, and more:

  • When the political rhetoric will settle regarding the CCSS?
  • What types of content do teachers expect— aligned, supported or integrated?
  • How can the CCSS change learning and teaching?
