SCED Codes: EdGate supports the alignment of your courses to SCED codes

Does your company need courses aligned to SCED codes? EdGate can provide those codes as a separate metadata field in your deliverable. For states that are not using SCED codes, but have adopted their own unique course codes, EdGate can provide those state-specific codes as they pertain to your courses.

What are the ingredients for a great remote learning course?

Remote learning has become a major part of our education system and while it has unique challenges, requiring creativity and innovation, it can be a rewarding experience for teachers and students. To get the most out of your courses and create a successful learning environment, there are a few things to consider.

Need a quick and easy way to get alignment reports into your client’s hands?

Correlation User Interface (CUI) may be exactly what you need.

At EdGate we hear from our clients that districts, educators, and publisher’s sales and marketing teams need content alignment to standards reports quickly and on the fly! There’s no reason why your staff needs to be bogged down with creating reports. A CUI frees up your time and puts alignment report generation into the hands of your users.

The California Department of Education is Strengthening the Balance in Its Ethnic Studies

Proposed changes to the California curriculum to strengthen the Ethnic Studies include rewording and creating new lessons that include a broader spectrum of ethnic groups. The goal is to educate students on achievements by various ethnic and religious groups. The California State Superintendent of Public Instruction noted the curriculum updates will promote conversations of additional groups “whose stories need to be told.”

Executive Function Skills in the Classroom

Age-old skills in a new package! We all grew up hearing “be positive, flexible, and work hard.” These 3 fundamental tenants of brain management are now being packaged and marketed in education arenas as teachable entities, particularly in focus due to our 2020 Pandemic. With kids ousted from their ‘normal’ classroom environment, where teachers were in charge of the student’s ‘focus’, students have struggled with suddenly having to manage ‘focus’ on their own.

Did you know that EdGate can align content to Certifications?

Certifications and Education Standards have a lot in common; you can almost think of a K-12 standard as the younger sibling of a Certification!

Education Standards are the learning goals for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. These standards are used throughout K-12 education. 

Certifications are designated credentials earned by an individual to verify their legitimacy and competence to perform a job.
