Get Your Tech On with PBS Learning Media
It’s that time of year again… time to GET YOUR TECH ON! Access to digital technology is absolutely critical to fostering learning in today’s educational environment. Now through December 11, PBS LearningMedia, ThinkTV and CET are emphasizing the importance of technology with resources to help you make effective use of digital content in the classroom.
More and more, educators are tapping into the power of digital media and technology for teaching and learning. The variety of information resources available online is simply staggering. Watch “How Google Saved a School” from FRONTLINE’s Digital Nation and examine the hype and the hopes for improving education through technology. The video looks at how the introduction of laptops at I.S. 339 helped make a significant change in the culture of learning for both students and teachers. Watch it here: http://to.pbs.org/1VMp5xU
