The Common Core Lesson Planner App utilizes advances in technology to provide an easy to use functional app for teachers in the classrooms that works with the Common Core State Standards. The Common Core Lesson Planner App is available on the Droid and Apple marketplaces.
Tablets Now for Teacher Functionality
We can all recognize how influential tablets have become to every industry and in a very short period of time because of how mobile they are and how cheap they have become. We are now at that point in education where tablets are starting to be immersed into the classroom in great numbers. One of the most obvious uses of the tablet from a teacherís perspective, is to help the students with supplementary material for their studies or applications to help them build specific skills. But as teachers, what we do not see is how we can use it for ourselves.
What we truly need to see is that paper and pencil lesson planners are of the education system from 50 years ago, and now is the time to advance our thinking of how teachers access lesson plans and assess their students on Common Core state standards that are in their lessons.
We have developed a new way for educators:
- to plan their days using voice recognition,
- view what standards they have taught and how often they have taught it throughout the year,
- be able to quickly score standards
- all while being mobile in the classroom and overall bringing Education into a new level of functional, accountable teaching practices.

Developed and utilized by a teaching 3rd grade teacher, we have the advantage seeing what is actually happening in the classroom, and how our product truly meets the needs of current educators.
