The California Collaborative on District Reform co-sponsored a pair of symposia called Moving Forward with Common Core State Standards: Harnessing the Power of Technology, one held in San Jose on November 12 and the other held in Los Angeles on November 14. The events featured a keynote address from Rushton Hurley about inspiring teachers with technology. Subsequent breakout sessions shared tools for educators to use in classrooms and lessons learned from districts and counties through their efforts to integrate technology and Common Core implementation. REL West and California Education Partners partnered with the California Collaborative to co-sponsor the event. These organizations co-sponsored similar symposia on Common Core implementation in August 2012 and June 2013.
