Texas Science Standards in the News

When Texas heats up discussions in the education arena, publishers tune in to see where in their content they will need to adapt next. Since the 1980's, factions have debated what should and should not be included in science standards...and this is still continuing today.

Career and Technical Education Standards

Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs in the U.S. change constantly to provide students with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in an increasingly dynamic world. But this means that CTE standards continue to change and grow as well.

The Common Career Technical Core (CCTC) includes 16 Career Clusters that define what students should comprehend upon completion of a specific Career Pathway. CCTC was introduced in 2012 as a way to simplify standards, but a great deal of variability still remains from state to state.

Career Technical Education and Government

As an industry leader, EdGate is "in the know" about teaching trends happening across the country.

In the past few years Career Technical Education has been on the rise, but in recent weeks it has once again taken center stage through a bipartisan bill which the House education committee approved. This bill reauthorizes the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act which was first authorized by the federal government in 1984.

Digital Chaptering Services

Digital content is prevalent in today's classrooms at all levels of education from kindergarten to college. Video and audio content can be valuable stand-alone teaching tools or integral resources in lesson plans that utilize multiple information sources. The EdGate team makes technology based resources classroom-ready by segmenting educational material into easily absorbable chunks. EdGate provides written descriptions of each segment and provides relevant search terms for maximum visibility in content searches.
