teacher-schoolA new school year brings with it new priorities for school administrators, teachers, and ed-tech leaders. Focusing on Common Core learning goals, integrating technology into lessons, and expanding students’ opportunity for project-based learning experiences are just some of the new initiatives and objectives educators have identified for the 2014-2015 school year.

eSchool News asked a range of educators, including our own Advisory Board members and educators belonging to the Discovery Educator Network (DEN), to share their own goals for the new year. Using their responses, we’ve compiled a quick look at some of the top back-to-school priorities.
