Common Core State Standards (CCSS)
At its essence, Common Core is about a process, not about content. For the English Language Arts (ELA) standards, that process has four major components:
*Reading & research of all media types
*Evaluation and analysis
*Thoughtful writing and synthesis of new ideas
HyperDuino projects can be used to support the Common Core standards in a very wide variety of ways by integrating a wide variety of media (text, sounds, graphics, video, animations, links to web-pages) and in a non-linear, hyperlinked environment. Because of this, in the many places in Common Core where it asks the student to compare and contrast, it can be a simple matter with the HyperDuino to set up examples from many different sources, and with different media types, right within the student project.
Common Core Standards That Are Supported by a HyperDuino project.
Rather than just list all the numbered sections, here is a way of finding the Common Core standards related to particular aspects of HyperStudio. Click on any of the HyperDuino-related words below to see all the standards that use that term in their definition. For each of them, the HyperDuino is a great classroom tool that will enhance the learning process for that particular standard.
