Today it is my pleasure to introduce you to Cyndie Sebourn, a National Board Certified teacher with a master’s degree in education and a passion for empowering educators to use apps in the classroom. She is the author of the Smarty Britches app series, published her own imprint, Sascyn Publishing.
It wasn’t enough for Cyndie to tie her own app series, into the Common Core standards, however. She wanted to help other authors and developers do the same. So she founded Apps With Curriculum, where she provides Common Core-aligned lesson plans. Cyndie created the Common-Core aligned reading strategies for A TROOP IS A GROUP OF MONKEYS. Not only did she deliver a quality product in a short period of time, she was so supportive and an absolute delight to work with.
Here’s what Cyndie had to say about AWC’s mission.
“AWC is providing educators with a course of study for each app that is cross curricular in subject areas and involves technology with education. And for the public educators who need it, it provides alignment to Common Core Standards.
The Latin meaning of curriculum alludes to a racing chariot. That is AWC: it is a race to learn everything possible that pertains to the app. It is a race to help educators. It is curriculum at its best.”
And now you are invited to a party – tonight! PicPocket Books, Sascyn Publishing and Dandelion Moms are sponsoring an Apps With Curriculum Facebook party starting at 5:00 PST/7:00 EST. For two hours you can join in the fun, learn about some of the best apps on the market today, and be eligible to win gift cards and promo codes from the more than 12 developers/publishers participating.
