How to Apply Ed Tech Teaching for Common Core Standards

When I was a student, I pounded out papers on an electric typewriter. When I started teaching, the web wasn’t an instant resource. I taught students about note cards and bibliography cards when they researched topics. Those days are long gone (and I am thrilled).
