Closing the Gap: How Core Challenge Will Help

Closing the Gap


How Core Challenge Can Help

  • Technology can accelerate the development and implementation thus leveling the playing field.
  • Each teacher generating a single exemplary idea can get us there in a fraction of the time of the old model.
  • Common core standards give us a model for organizing ideas from all teachers, not just a select few in each state.
  • Applying scoring rubrics from experts in the field will allow for consistent peer review.
  • Students can be integrated into the matrix to provide learning opportunities and broader perspectives.

Anticipated Outcomes

  • Teachers will have a vast library available 24/7 – from video to audio to examples to guide in their improvement.
  • Materials will be made available directly to parents and students building an even stronger resource and breaking down traditional educational barriers.
  • Students will have access to exemplary instructional resources no matter their zip code.
  • The Core Challenge – coordinating the efforts of 3.2 million teachers and more than 50 million students.
