PBS unveiled a new online community for PreK-12 that supports the
advancement of digital media content and technology integration in
education. The site, PBS Teachers Connect, is located online athttp://www.pbsteachers.org/connect
The new online resource is designed to foster discussion, use of
digital media content, and to enable educators to form shared-interest
groups online. The site offers a personalized Home page for each user,
user profiles, a searchable database of resources and community
members, bookmarking tools, and discussion threads.
Additional components will be available in the fall. These include
private messaging, community feeds, friend feeds, online events, and a
digital media gallery.
PBS Teachers Connect is built around PBS Teachers
(www.pbsteachers.org), a portal to PBS multimedia instructional
resources and professional development services for PreK-12 educators.
The portal provides educators with no-cost access to more than 3,000
standards-based classroom activities, lesson plans, interactive
resources, and other materials on the PBS Teachers Web site. This
material can be bookmarked, annotated, shared, and managed within the
PBS Teachers Connect community.
