[prMac.com] Cameron Park, California - Curriculum for The Prisoner of Carrot Castle was written by certified teacher Cyndie Sebourn of Apps With Curriculum. Ms Sebourn saw what was coming and started an educational technology service to develop Common Core-aligned course work for book app developers. Sebourn, a retired Arkansas educator, founded Apps With Curriculum to make educational apps better suited for classroom use. Her own book app with accompanying CCSS aligned curriculum, Smarty Britches Nouns, teaches kids about nouns through a Southern-themed story with engaging interactions that reinforce the learning.
The Prisoner of Carrot Castle has enjoyed over 40,000 downloads from the Apple App Store and offers discounts to schools. After downloading the app, teachers can connect their iPad to a classroom SMART Board(R) and read the book with all the interaction while kids watch and enjoy. Teachers can use the reading strategies offered in the CCSS aligned curriculum as a course of study that is cross curricular in subject areas and involves technology with education, an important aspect of CCSS.
With the roll out of Common Core State Standards (CCSS) there are lots of questions and issues. Most educators support the standards, but are concerned about the lack of training and proper implementation. Publishers and others are asking how they can help teachers and administrators implement the standards.
