About Tis Magazine


Te creation of this magazine sprung from my con- versations with educators across the country faced with the challenge of implementing the Common Core. Trough those conversations, similar hopes and desires, fears and challenges surfaced. Many educators shared that they were overwhelmed by the largeness of the task of implementing the Core with fidelity and felt pressure to achieve immediate success. Educators also shared the concern that they had a lack of knowledge about what role digital con- tent should play in a Common Core classroom.


It is to address that concern and to provide a touch- stone along each school’s digital content journey that this magazine was born. Te articles within are a culmination of 9 years of partnership with tens of thousands of educators we have worked alongside, extensive Common Core training, and targeted research. It is our sincere hope that this information will help educators use digital content to assist in the success of their Common Core transition, and it will be a resource for years to come as they grow in their knowledge of effective digital content integration.
