This presentation introduces participants to the Savvy Cyber Teacher® professional development program which utilizes “unique and compelling” Internet-based curriculum resources to promote effective learning experiences through the meaningful integration of technology into the K-20 science and mathematics curriculum.

CIESE curriculum materials:

  • promote the integration of science, mathematics, technology, and other core subjects
  • are explicitly linked to state and national content standards
  • are multi-disciplinary, focusing on science topics that require quantitative analysis; critical thinking; collaboration, and other 21st century workforce skills
