The school library media program supports and strengthens the curriculum, bridges the digital divide, and puts state standards into action. The school library media specialist encourages reading for learning, reading for pleasure, and reading for life. The school library media specialist is a teacher, an instructional partner, an informational specialist, and a school library media program administrator.

SketchUp Pro Statewide K-12 License Grant

The Georgia Department of Education applied for and was awarded a SketchUp Pro Statewide K-12 License Grant.

Educators can use this software in a variety of grade levels and content areas to create 3D models of anything.

Open​SALT and CASE​

OpenSALT​ is an open-source tool the Georgia Department of Education uses to publish course standards in a machine-readable format. The Georgia Department of Education has adopted the technical specification by IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS Global) called Competency and Academic Standards Exchange (CASE) to enable a machine readable, linked data versions of state, local learning objectives and targets, and any workplace, military, or higher education competencies representing skills, knowledge, or abilities. ​

GaDOE Community​

The Georgia Department of Education launched the GaDOE Community​ site to provide a platform for Department staff to interact with our colleagues across the state. This site has been developed to facilitate collaboration and our ongoing efforts to provide the services and supports necessary to ensure all students across Georgia have what they need to be successful. This is a place where GaDOE teams, school and district staff, RESAs, and other partners within the state can interact to share important information, discuss ongoing work, and share success stories across agencies.
