A Curriculum-First Approach to Technology & the Web

Technology and the web have the potential to transform learning, but to do so effectively, educators must start by developing a clear curriculum strategy as a foundation.

Administrators in the 4,300-student Del Mar Union School District in San Diego, California implemented a curriculum strategy using Google Chromebooks and Apps for Education to prepare students for academic achievement, as well as lifelong, self-directed learning and engagement as both global and digital citizens.

Attend this web seminar to learn the keys to creating this curriculum strategy, and how the district is using Google Chromebooks and Apps for Education in the classroom and beyond to support its curriculum focus in writing, as well as Common Core State Standards.

Topics will include:

  • The unique benefits and features of Google Chromebooks and Apps for EducationĀ 
  • How Google Chromebooks and Apps for Education utilize the power and simplicity of the web and help to engage all stakeholders
