“…to create just these kinds of tests—next-generation assessments aligned to the common core. When the tests are aligned to the common standards, the curriculum will line up as well—and that will unleash powerful market forces in the service of better teaching.” – Bill Gates, 2009 Speech To Natl. Conference of State Legislatures
The goal is to align everything so that students and the money have no where to go but Common Core.
Last time we looked at Edulastic. Today we look at Khan Academy.
We’ve used Khan Academy in our house prior to Common Core. My kids loved it and the instructions were clear and entertaining. These days, not so much. They’ve gone Common Core Aligned.
